Growing livelihoods, overcoming poverty, one small business at a time.


Our mission:

To enable the very poor in developing countries to build a pathway out of poverty through small business development.

Our work:

Working through partner organisations in developing countries, we facilitate local microfinance schemes which respond directly to the needs of vulnerable rural and urban communities.

Just Small Change is a Registered Charity.

MICROCREDIT - how it works:

Business training, small loans and ongoing mentoring help our clients to build businesses, support their families, educate their children and strengthen their communities. Improved incomes enable clients to save, reducing their vulnerability and allowing them to plan for a better future. Finally, as loans are repaid, the capital can be re-loaned to another aspiring entrepreneur, so your donation goes on working.

Clients from the same area meet regularly as a group to discuss the progress of their businesses, operate savings clubs and socialise. Lasting and supportive friendships are formed.

In 2019, 2 day training for group leaders (chair, secretary and treasurer) has been introduced, to boost the effectiveness of the groups.
