Goodwille team members - Alexander (CEO), Jacqui (HR Manager), Johanna (Marketing Executive) and Isabelle (Corporate Legal Assistant) - are taking part in the Asics London 10k to raise funds for MicroLoan Foundation. The charity supports the poorest women in remote rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa to work their own way out of poverty. By providing them with financial literacy, business training, on-going support and small affordable loans, MicroLoan help these women to start small businesses for themselves. With a regular income, the women are able to provide the basics for their families – food, shelter, education and medicine. MicroLoan teach them to save as insurance against future crop failure, illness and other unexpected emergencies. In short, they give them hope, not handouts.
Please support us as we lace up our running shoes for this incredible charity.
