how we WORK
Our process starts off with reaching out to sponsors available to fund our organization and the women in need of support. We use that money to provide and manage the funds, distribution and lending factors to support each borrower, while still allowing them to be independent by growing their businesses and eventually returning the money through micro-lending!
Our organization always appreciates the generosity and involvement of people like you, with every contribution going towards making SWIFT even better and more effective than it is now.
The micro-lending process allows individuals without access to large banking systems or those who may not qualify for bank loans to access financial support. The money provided allows them to jumpstart and fund their small businesses.
Our micro-lending programme helps women grow and develop to eventually become financially independent and pay back the loan (so we can then support more women!). Unlike most micro-lending programmes, we don’t include any forms of interest to profit, and depend on YOU and the community to help us aid these women.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, SWIFT has had to stop directly raising funds through our fundraisers such as pizza sales. We hope to continue these fundraisers as soon as possible while maintaining COVID-19 guidelines and following safety protocols.
We also hope to expand further and create our own micro-financing platforms as we develop in the coming years. We're currently busy reaching out to funding organizations and local women within Oman and the Middle East to change OUR local community on a grassroots level.
