We constantly strive to improve the way we operate as a business and our Makers are always at the forefront of our minds. We have recently been able to put a brand new payment system into place that we believe will bring about added financial security to the women in our Maker Community.
We have already proudly reported that thanks to our new bank and banking system, we are now able to pay our women via bank transfer, rather than by cheque. Being able to adopt this method has proved absolutely invaluable during lock down, as we have been unable to travel to communities to give the cheques to our Makers. We have since been able to add an extra layer to this latest process, with the bank transfers being made on the 15th of each month, which will really help the women to budget for their households with greater confidence, knowing exactly when and how much money they will be receiving each month.
Being able to help our Maker Community in this way, putting steps in place to help each women feel more secure financially, helps us inch ever closer to our vision of a world where all women have the confidence and resources to make choices, thrive and contribute to the strengthening of their communities.
We are proud of how we are able to make improvements like this to Secret Projects and look forward to what other ideas are around the corner. Of course, the 15th day of each month is now our favourite date!
