Empowering women for life
BURKINA FASO, WEST AFRICA
Creative Warriors + Our Pay It Forward Loan Program
We are empowering women for life by providing
in-country sustainable business loans
in partnership with Walk In The Light Intl.
- We help women create in-country sustainable businesses.
- We have over 300 women in our program.
- We have short-term, long-term, and educational loans available.
- Our loans are no-fee, no-interest.
- Every dollar donated keeps rolling meaning: 100% of every dollar goes toward funding woman after woman, so your gift truly keeps on giving.
- We provide a 4-Day Business Training Program in each village prior to starting a business. Our local team provides assistance in writing business plans and walks each woman through every phase of her business until 2 years after her loan is repaid.
- We have a 100% pay back rate.
- We have started a 2-Year Government Accredited Sewing School Tailor Program that equips graduates to take a national test to either run their own business, work for the government, or provide tailing services. During school, they have an in-service project where they make period pads for their community.
- We have started a Period Pad Project in 5 villages where we educate women on their health, their bodies, and the importance of their identity in Christ.
- We have also started chicken farms, water pumps, and gardens to help feed the school children.
With your help, truly no woman will be left behind.
Support one of our projects by helping
Women in our program: over 300
It starts with an artist creating to sell so she can stay home with her children. Once the children took flight, her work became a vehicle to give back both locally and globally…
This is where Lisa, the artist, went to Burkina Faso West Africa with Walk in the Light International to help build a healthcare center. While there, women came out of the bush to say “we have been waiting for you to come, we have been praying for you to come” That is where the PAY IT FORWARD LOAN PROGRAM began. A program that empowers women for life as they create in-country sustainable businesses and find their true identity in Christ to become who God intended them to be; powerful for their families and communities.
“As you lift up a woman, you lift up humanity”
– Melinda Gates
We achieve this mission by selling artwork and connecting our customers to our women and their stories. As each woman pays back her loan, another woman is funded. It is a program that truly keeps on giving.
Wont you become a Creative Warrior with us and change the world one woman at a time?
