“For a woman living in extreme poverty, being in a savings group gives her agency.”Robin Phillips, President of iZōsh International
Robin Phillips, President of iZōsh International, recently had the opportunity to speak during a World Vision ‘Made To Thrive’ event about how savings groups are the dynamic engine that can help lift people out of extreme poverty. The THRIVE model used by VisionFund, World Vision’s Microfinance arm, has been a powerful vehicle to support families economically to break the cycle of poverty. iZōsh Chapters are modeled after a savings group, used as part of the THRIVE model, with the aim of helping provide agency to women living in extreme poverty.
