SHED is a campaign movement to end poverty working towards empowering the poor through holistic change.
MICROFINANCE AT A CROSSROAD:
Microfinance is synonymous to poverty eradication. The biggest contribution of microfinance thus far is providing the poor access to credit, but to realize the dream of a world free from poverty, microfinance alone is not enough…
A world where individuals and communities are free from all forms of poverty.
To help eradicate poverty by delivering programs, products and services that empower, develop and transform individuals and communities.
SHED’s business platform is microfinance or lending micro-loans for the poor to start or expand livelihood and provision of savings services to build up their wealth.
The poor will remain poor for as long as they live in shanties. SHED empowers by providing socialized micro-loans for housing that include micro-insurance.
Central to SHED’s empowerment initiative is to raise the dignity of the poor from begging to sharing a transformed life in entrepreneurship and micro-investing.
