Showing you two photos today. The top one is of the house that this family used to live in - holes in the walls, and a grass roof that let the rain in during the rainy season and constantly needed repairs. The bottom photo is of their new home - sturdy walls, tin roof, and needing little maintenance in the years to come.
The reason for the difference? This woman joined a World Vision community loans program and received a no interest loan so she could provide a better home for her family. The husband and wife will pay the loan back - but as they can and when they can - with no pressure from a bank that demands high interest rates.
Another wonderful story to share from Malawi.
