Mars Hil, Microfinancing and Restoring Burundi

23 May

Mars Hill in an effort to use their influence and size as a force for good in the world has something called the X, Y, Z initiative.

Here is an example of what they are doing in Burundi:
As part of the [Z] initiative, we plan to invest $1.5 million in Turame over a five-year period. This investment will provide for individual loans designed to increase income for the poorest 30% of the economically active in Burundi. It will also help to build a sustainable microfinance institution for alleviating poverty through economic opportunities.
