Many women have been made vulnerable by HIV and AIDS. These have lost their bread winners and children that would support them at a late age. Some of them are grandmothers looking caring for more than 4 orphans besides their own children. This project will provide micro loans to 50 poor women impacted by HIV in rural Masaka in Uganda. The women will use the micro loans to expand or start their small businesses that can help them provide for their children/families and grow family incomes.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Many families have been impacted by HIV and AIDS in Masaka Uganda. Women have been the most impacted by HIV and AIDS as their bread winners are lost and taken into single parenting. Grandmothers are taken into late parenting with no source of income. The micro loans will benefit 50 women infected and affected by HIV to start or expand their small businesses to support their families and grow their family incomes.
How will this project solve this problem?
We provide micro loans of US$ 50 to $100 to 50 women infected and affected with HIV and AIDS to start or grow their businesses. This will help the poor, vulnerable women to support their families and improve their family incomes.
Potential Long Term Impact
We will provide micro loans to 50 women, allowing them to rise out of poverty and provide for their families for ages. 50 women benefit directly. Over 250 children will benefit indirectly.
