Financial literacy program

The core of MAPLE Microdevelopment’s work is financially strengthening communities. This process always begins by increasing community financial literacy through tools such as the internal savings and loan group. In this group, MAPLE Oregon and interested Emerald Village Eugene residents collaborate to design a savings and loan group that fits within EVE’s particular culture, so to ensure that residents are able to save money together, and take out loans so to cover costs of basic needs and micro-business endeavors.
