The Microcredit Projects in Hermosillo Mexico continue to be very successful. The two Global Grants in the Hermosillo Project administered by our Micro-Finance Institution (FinReg), continue to perform well and exceed our long term goal of 97.5% collection. Over 85% of the borrowers are women, and many are single mothers. Portfolio as of Jan 1, 2017:
DONATION for Quotation Program
By Toni Davies - RC of Glendale West
I have a DONATION for Quotation Program I offer via work to help the community. I sell auto, home, life, and annuities. But for every family who gets a free quote, a donation can be made in honor of them to any non-profit of their choosing.
How amazing would it be to ask Rotarians to get a free quote on insurance that takes 10 minutes to review and we make a donation to The Rotary Foundation, with no obligation for the Rotarian to buy. Its super simple. I can even track what club donated the most and do a monthly report in the newsletter.
