Project of the month:
Some times as little as $100 gift can transform a man or womans life by giving them the capital to start their own business. A business like hair dressing, using a wheel barrow at a bus station or an oven to bake cakes to sell to travellers. All these and more have been used to start a person on the road to self sufficiency and wealth creation. WCM is starting a small deposit in order to create funds to be used by people in Asia and Africa to get a loan, use it and repay it back into that loan based through our reps in that country.
