WFA is a non-profit that assists women in providing for their families through entrepreneurship. We provide small loans, education, and accountability to enable the women to become self-sustaining. Our organization is built around small groups of women who encourage one another and grow together. The heart of WFA is to see families in Kenya released from both spiritual and physical poverty. We are motivated by the love of Jesus.
WHO WE SERVE
WFA ministers to women living in Nakuru, Kenya. Some of our partners are single moms, widows, and women with difficult marriages or family situations. Some are the sole providers for their family. They come from various religious or non-religious backgrounds. We bear the name “Women of Faith Alliance” because we want to be a community of women supporting one another. Often it is through these relationships that the gospel of Jesus Christ is able to take root in a woman’s life.
WHAT WE DO
Getting access to basic financial services can be a real struggle for families living in poverty. Most of our women are unable to open a bank account, and few could ever hope to have a sum of money to invest in a business or to save for the future.
When a woman becomes a partner with WFA, she has the opportunity to participate in a short business course that teaches principles of stewardship and basic money management. Afterwards, she can apply for a small business loan. We interview each woman and come alongside her as she makes plans for how she is going to grow her loan money. As she starts this journey, she will meet regularly with several other partners for encouragement and accountability.
WFA currently has several gifted women working as liaisons – these are Kenyan women who oversee the small groups and provide discipleship and mentoring. They help lead ongoing entrepreneurial training. By graciously giving of their time and energy they make this ministry possible!
Our goal is to help women find their own path to providing for their families in a sustainable way. Here are a few examples of the businesses they are pursuing:
Raising chickens or other livestock
Selling food or produce in the market
By the grace of God and for His glory, Women of Faith Alliance endeavors to improve the spiritual, emotional, and physical lives of women living in Kenya.
