As a result of the generosity of an anonymous donor, we were able to provide clean cooking stoves and education to vulnerable families in Zambia. Over the last four winter months, 1000 families have benefitted from the provision of clean cooking stoves. Family members love their new stoves as these keep them warm, cook food faster, and save money on fuel.
Microfinance for Women
Dear Friend: Happy June!
Dear Friend: Hope you and your loved ones are staying safe from the COVID-19 virus. As many of us continue to work from the safety of our homes, we are reminded that it's a privilege to have a safe shelter, ample food, and good health care. However, this is not true for most families we work with in Zambia and India.

Micro Loans Transform Lives of Vulnerable Women
Dear friend: Happy September! Today we would like you to meet Amy, who inspires us every day with her can-do attitude and her willingness to work hard. Amy is the sole caregiver for five children and four other family members. She enrolled in our micro loans program in 2018 when she received business training and a loan.
Dear Friend: Today we have a special piece of information to share. Power of Love and internationally renowned Flutist Sri Raman Kalyan, have collaborated to create soul enriching music. Sri Raman Kalyan generously donated worldwide distribution rights of this music to POL.
The mechanics of our micro loans program are as follows:
In March 2019, 209 new women were provided with a four-day business training. These women replaced the women who graduated earlier this year. This implies that in the first three months of 2019, 209 new businesses were started, and the 209 graduates are continuing to run businesses in the community.
