Money donations are made available to women parishioners wishing to start their own "Home Industry Business”.
A loan of R5000 is granted to an approved applicant, where the agreement is that the loan is paid back monthly over a period of three years.
The first payment is payable three months after the loan has been granted.
Currently the money for this project is donated by the Canadian Compass Rose Society.
Since its inception in 2004 “Home Industry Loans” have been granted to many women parishioners across the Diocese.
