Fighting Malnutrition Sustainably, Part 3: Savings and Loans Groups

"Poverty is a major factor that limits access to adequate nutritious foods." (2014 Global Hunger Index)

Coupled with changing food systems through improved agriculture and animal husbandry, as well as health education via Cascade groups, FH Canada helps organize and train Savings and Loans Groups in each of its partner communities. 

These groups focus on financial literacy, creating a stronger social safety net, and offering livelihood training so that women and men can start generating enough income to afford a more nutritious diet. Creating cash flow and capital via small businesses (like tailoring, cricket farming, torch making, etc) allows families to purchase meat and vegetables that might otherwise be inaccessible to them.
