Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Changing Lives

The Rural Women Developers is a community Based Organization which has come to limelight in rural parts of Busia county this year through its aggressive effort to see that women in rural areas also have access to such facilities as simple loans to finance their business and even to ensure that women in this area are taught on how to invest decisions, and also they are taught on proper planning and use of finances and the result that is seen today is a community full of women whose eyes have been opened up and are thinking on how to invest the loans they get so that they can grow financial stable as it is already being witnessed in other women.
