PFP is a locally-run micro-finance initiative enriching the lives of rural women & families.
Working hands-on with local communities across the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo, PFP promotes improved livestock & agriculture practices as renewable revenue streams, empowering rural families to build economic stability to support their basic needs—improving health and safety, funding education, and fostering family & community relations.
Economic empowerment, gender equality, AND environmental sustainability
Fostering long-term change takes a systemic approach. PFP operates three interrelated programs, all stimulating sustainable income-generating activities aimed at helping rural families lift themselves out of extreme poverty:
A GLOBAL COLLABORATION FOR LOCAL IMPACT
PFP is a collaborative effort between PAIDEK, a locally-operated Congolese micro-finance organization, and Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, a global health & research institution based in the United States.
Your support matters
While the goal of PFP is to evolve into a self-sustaining social enterprise, there are many unforeseen challenges that can stifle progress along the way. Your financial support helps ensure PFP programs can expand to reach communities and impact lives.
