Community Managed Microfinance (CMMF)

Through the community-managed microfinance program BCFK is able to empower communities to create sustainable livelihoods by forming self-help groups. The CMMF model that we use in implementing this project has been adopted from Stromme Foundation , one of our core donors.

Our target groups are women and youth. These groups are taught how to mobilise local resources by pooling their savings, from which loans are issued to willing members. These funds are then used as a start-up capital for small ventures or as capital injection into existing businesses.
