Despite the glimmer of hope, South Sudan remains a troubled nation. South Sudanese people are continuing to flee into neighboring countries, and long-time refugees in those countries fear to return home.
Thanks for your recent donation gift to Microloan for South Sudanese Refugee women project in Uganda.
Only months ago an alleged coup in South Sudan has left hundreds dead, and many in the region concerned for what the coming months may bring for the world's youngest country.
Only months ago an alleged coup in South Sudan has left hundreds dead, and many in the region concerned for what the coming months may bring for the world's youngest country. More than one million people have been forced from their homes by the ongoing conflict in South Sudan, the UN says. Of these, 803,200 have been displaced within the country, and another 254,000 have fled to neighboring countries, according to the latest UN report. It warns that the situation is likely to get worse as the violence continues.
We are thrilled to announce Hope Ofiriha is partnering with Deki UK micro finance, and the Troll tech Foundation (Kiva's partner) as their field partner in East Africa. Through this initiative Hope Ofiriha will be providing micro credit for entrepreneurial mothers to provide their families with basic necessities and pay school fees for their children.
With the loan from Troll tech we provided small loan to twenty clients to retail to make a huge profit to repay their loan on time while retaining big portion of the profit. These clients are doing in their tiny enterprise.
In March 37,898, 225 Ugandan Shillings (USD. 14,786.40) worth of new loans was funded via the Deki website. This is the biggest amount raised in one month to provide loan to 39 clients. In April ten clients will receive loans with funding from GlobalGiving, and 39 clients will receive loans with funding from Deki.
Some clients who returned when south Sudan got independence two years ago are returning to Kampala. They need a loan to start income generating activity in order to provide for their families and pay their children's school fees.
In the next quarter a new field update will be posted so that you get to know what the impact of your contribution is helping to create in the lives of the beneficiaries from the ground.
We are happy to announce that Hope Ofiriha has received a loan of $6600 from Trolltech Foundation (Kiva's partner). The loan will be split into microloans in order to help the actual refugee family to move from one sack of burnt charcoal to ten - or from having salt money to funding children's education. Twenty families will benefit from this loan, and each will get a loan of $330-. When the amount is repaid from the actual refugee family, Hope Ofiriha will transfer these funds back to Stiftelsen Trolltech Foundation not later than May 30 2014.
With your donation, repaid loans, and a new loan from Trolltech Foundation, Hope Ofiriha will give loan to 30 clients on December 16. Our clients are making good progress out of poverty.
Our clients are eager to see this project progressing, but they still need your help to keep this project running. A new field report will be posted after three months where you get to know what impact your contribution has created, and the improvement it has given in the lives of beneficiaries.
