Western Zambia is one of the materially poorest parts of the country. CEMFIN is extending the kingdom of heaven to the region. Since 2012, Christian Empowerment Microfinance (CEMFIN) has offered micro-loans, basic business training, and spiritual encouragement to support the growth of small businesses, and more recently has added a youth empowerment program. They are based in Mongu and hope to eventually expand closer to the Angolan border and throughout the rest of Zambia. PEER Servants is partnering with them to that end.
