In much of Africa, firewood is scarce. It must be hand-cut in forests far from the city and trucked in where the people can utilize it. Your gift will provide a business micro-loan to a local laborer to purchase a chainsaw, tools and safely equipment. A load of firewood can take all day to hand chop. A worker with a chainsaw can fill a truck with firewood in 1/4 the time it takes to hand chop it. Your gift will provide a valuable tool for a local worker to increase their efficiency and to better provide for their family and children while running their own business.
