Margaret Sentamu

“I am delighted to be involved with the Five Talents microfinance charity because I know from experience the difference the small loans made to individuals, families and whole communities. I am also particularly excited that the Five Talents has targeted working with women in poor countries because I am confident that every penny or shilling lent will be well worth spent and will help transform individuals and communities.”
