PEF
This article is interesting. Some highlights:

"He said 13,000 to 14,000 loans have been given. Most of them have been distributed to people living in Central and South America. The next phase of the program will take the fund to West Africa, India and Asia.

"It's a big world," Allen said. "It's tough to try and reach out and start helping those people, but with the areas we're in now we're covering over 88 percent of all the young single adults in the church outside the U.S. and Canada."

Allen told the audience their role in helping the PEF is mainly to keep in contact with returned missionaries they know, and encourage them to be faithful and to be patient if they cannot yet get a PEF loan. He also said students can contribute to the fund as much as they are able."
