Business Training Graduation

In July we held 4 sessions of Business Training with Laura from South Africa. Since a lot of people go away in August we decided to do the graduation in September. This last week we held the "ceremony": 15 people graduated, here are Jasna and Bilja getting their certificates:
Along with the Certificate, the graduates of the training also got the Dorcas Aid business plan forms which they will have a month to put their plans onto the plan with our help... The forms are then translated into English (by moi!) and sent to Holland to be evaluated. The best 3 plans will be given an interest-free loans of 5000KM (2500Euro/R30 000) to start their business. We have given loans out in the past 2 years to start a vegetable garden, buy scaffolding and to buy a fridge for a cake making business amongst other things... it is great to be able to help people to help themselves!
