We recently met up with our partners at GGEM Microfinance Services to assess their current situation and get an update on their developments during the pandemic. We are proud to report that GGEM has really weathered the storm and has managed to work with those clients who were severely affected by the COVID pandemic. Although last year was challenging, they have managed to get their books back in order and are disbursing loans again as before, and their clients have been amazingly resilient following the measures taken last year. We are proud to be partnering with such a financial institution that manages to work diligently and safely despite severe headwinds. We started working with them back in 2014 amid Ebola, so we knew what they were capable of, and we are happy to see their resilience continues.
During our meeting, they presented us with a beautiful picture of Africa made out of Ankara, as a token of appreciation for our support through the years.
