The MicroLoan Foundation
"Pennies for Life"

Art Buyer: Bel January
Description of the Project

The MicroLoan Foundation is a charity that helps women in Africa to set up their own small businesses. Our campaign is called 'Pennies for Life'. On a digital poster site, we created unfinished portraits of African women, made of pennies. Then we invited people to complete each picture by texting a donation. As soon as it arrived, the money dropped into place on the screen. Donors got a personal 'thank you' on the poster, and a credit on our microsite. And, from one poster site, in its first weekend, 21 women who had nothing now have their own small businesses.
