WMI Blog--Updated by WMI Interns in Uganda and Kenya!

This fall Montana Stevenson and Ainsley Morris will be in Uganda and Kenya working on WMI projects for 4 months, starting at the end of September.  WMI has asked them to blog once a week about their experiences.  They will be traveling all the way to Kable in southwestern Uganda to launch new loan programs and as far as Nyahururu in central Kenya to visit existing ones.  In between, they will interview borrowers and their families, conduct trainings, and meet with PostBank staff to develop a written manual on transitioning to independent banking.  Share their insights, photos and videos during this exciting 4 month journey on the new WMI blog at:
 
A link to the blog also appears in the header on the WMI web site.
 
You can post comments on the blog, so please let them hear from you while they are out in the field!  They will really welcome feedback from WMI supporters while they are away.
