I am a volunteer with Peer Servants and was recently sent by Peer Servants to Cusco, Peru to help native women obtain a microloan for a business I helped them to start. This has the effect of helping not only the nine women I worked with, but potentially their entire community. If successful, they will be hiring family, friends, and neighbors to work in their card-making business. Your support of Peer Servants helps ten other third world countries to receive loans to help their materially poor grow businesses.
