For nearly 10 years the Arizona Microcredit Program, started by Rotarians Wayne Rish and Terry Lubsen has uplifted the lives of those living in Sonora Mexico. Funded by three Global Grants and additional funding, we have assisted thousands of borrowers to increase their ability to grow the size and scope of their already existing small businesses.
We do this by lending capital in small amounts so they can purchase additional supplies and materials to increase their income.
Every year our committee plans trips to Hermosillo, Mexico to bring Rotarians from clubs in District 5495 and 5500 to visit, meet and interact with our beneficiaries of this program and we are again doing so in 2024 with 10 spots available for each trip.
The schedule for these trips is as follows:
* January-26-28, 3 spots available
* February-23-2,5 7 spots available
* March-22-24, 10 spots available
* April-26-28, 10 spots available
We depart from the Tufesa Bus depot in Phoenix and pick up in Tucson as well. All costs of the trip, bus fares, meals and lodging (2 per room) are covered.
Join us and learn about and see how a Rotary program that you and your club can sponsor (or are already sponsoring) is changing lives every day and has done so year after year.
Spots fill up rapidly so contact: PDG Abe Feder 602-622-7289 or abefeder1@gmail.com to lean more details and to reserve your seat on the bus!
