Help People like Kanini

Every dollar raised will transform the lives of people like Kanini from Kenya. For years, Kanini worked 12 hours a day, 6 days a week for a total of $2 – barely enough to feed her family 2 meals a day. But today she owns a successful business and earns 20 times more than she did before. How did this happen? Through a village savings group run by the local church.
