Index believes in creating opportunities. An expamle of doing so is the program for microfinance of Oxfam Novib. Therefore Index has decided to become an enterprise ambassador. Index donates to Oxfam Novib every month, alongside we seek attention for the organisation's work.
Many of those who live in poverty are more than willing to put in a lot of effort in order to improve their situation. To start a small diner or to create jewelry to sell, money is necessary. If there even is a bank nearby, these entrepreneurs will not be successful there. Since they have no pledge, because they are women or simply because the bank does not support their ideas. Microfinance in these cases will make a huge difference.
Through partnerorganisations that are supported by Oxfam Novib, more than 3.5 million microcredits have been issued by now. All redeemed payments are re-issued as microcredits. This way even more people will have new opportunities created for them and Index is keen on contributing to the initiative.
