Fr. Andrew Small, OMI, National Director of the Pontifical Missions Societies announced that a $20 million loan has been secured to expand investment in the Catholic Church in Africa. The loan will benefit programs designed to support Church-affiliated education, health, and agricultural programs over the next several years.
The loan for this effort was secured by the Missio Invest Social Impact Fund. Several faith-based organizations invest in this fund in addition to the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.
