More than 20 years after Jocelyn Farrington served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Babangatu, Niger she continues to serve her village through NANEY, a non-profit she established to promote sustainable development. Jocelyn and her board hope that NANEY provides an opportunity for other returned Niger Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) to reconnect with the communities where they carried out their volunteer service in a lasting and meaningful way. In 2018, NANEY invited TCP Global to partner with them to support micro-loans for women peanut farmers.
Friends of Nigeria (FON) has partnered with Fantsuam in Kafanchan for almost ten years. In 2019, FON introduced TCP Global to Fantsuam, which now partners with TCP Global to provide affordable micro-loans in Kafanchan.
Would YOUR Peace Corps site benefit from a sustainable loan program ??
While Colombia remains our largest program with eight sites, in the last five years TCP Global expanded its zero-overhead, sustainable micro-loan model to underserved communities in Guatemala, Peru, Niger, Nigeria, Uganda and Senegal.
Newest loan sites
Salamina, Colombia & Otuzco, Peru
Semillas por la Paz (Seeds for Peace) is lead by a local businessman to improve agriculture in his small Colombian community. A Peace Corps Volunteer connected him to TCP Global. Semillas por la Paz has issued 8 loans to date with an average value of $154.
TCP Global does the mentoring, fund raising and loan tracking and will train RPCVs to assist with further expansion.
From the comfort of your home, you can actually do community development in your Peace Corps site. We can help.
