Who we help

Our clients are farmers, hairdressers, cafe owners, clothes sellers, car washers, market traders and countless trades in between. Some are located in towns, most are found in rural areas and many of them are women. Few clients had a safe place to save or borrow money until Five Talents arrived. Now they are growing their business or saving for their child's education in one of our savings schemes.
