Programs

We advance microcredit for income generation and consumption purposes to low income households. We also provide business capital to small and medium enterprises. We are currently piloting the home improvement loan aimed for people who need money for small repairs/improvements to their households. All of our loans are insured i.e. in the event of a client or her bread winner's death, the loan is written off hence we also provide microinsurance.
