Paso Por Paso is a Registered Charity | Charity Registration Number: 855279329RR0001
Paso Por Paso offers a micro-credit programme for women, primarily in the village of Tierra Linda. The programme provides seed money on an interest free basis for the purchase of goods and materials to allow a start up or further development of home based businesses. Some women make handicrafts such as weaving or jewellery making for sale to the tourist population, others may open a local store and some start or expand an agricultural based business such as raising chickens.
Some of our members who have visited Tierra Linda regularly over the years will attest that they have witnessed tangible signs of the success of this programme in improvements in the self-esteem of the women, their position in the community, and their family’s lifestyle.
There has never been a default on any loan.
