The CRO considered it desirable to give the returners who want to start a small grant business in their homeland an unprofitable loan instead of the charity system that is known in the Circassian associations in diaspora due to the following reasons:
1. It helps the borrower to feel more secure and stable in his home ,and also it helps him to take responsibility in paying up his debts.
2. It helps the the Organization in getting a sustainable financial resource in order to support new returners from these paid loans.
3. These small projects contribute to the general economy and thus the returner is no more dependent on any one.
