It all started with a dream. A dream that everyone has the right to be included in society. A dream to increase access to prosthetic care, also for amputees in low-income economies. This dream was born when one of ProPortion’s team members, Merel, lived in Colombia and understood it was one of the countries with the highest number of landmine victims worldwide. While working for a MFI (Micro-financing institution), she saw people with a low-income capable of accessing financing services but still lacking the prosthetic devices they needs. So, if they could lend money… why couldn’t they get artificial legs? She thought, with a ‘lease-your-leg-construction’, they could regain their mobility, start working again and be part of society. ProPortion encouraged her to go find out.
