I am pleased to present this report pertaining our progress in the last 3 months  which highlights our previous achievements as well as areas for further work in in helping the 80 women to sustain themselves  into the Organization’s policies, programmes and activities.

First is a pile of appreciation to you our generous donors who have showed your tremendous support in our projects.We look forward to a continued relationship.

Within the three months period we have embarked in the following activities:

In July we had a meeting with the vulnerable women which we developed a group project to help generate money that will sustain the women.We founded a project on production of washing detergents,which has not started yet due to financial challenges.

We did indivudual home visit to some of the members where we shared ideas and adviced the members on the positive living,interacted with them and took goodies.Since the start of this initiative 2 months ago we have been able to visit 8 members since the visitations occur weekly.We are looking forward to increasing our weekly visitations inorder to visit all members in a short span.

We have established a panel of  specialised counsellor who are demoted to offering their services to the women at their time of need.The team aims on helping the members cope with stress and make positive decision on personal matters.

Thanks Isabelle Hall and Paige Creigh for the visit.

We were honored to host Isabelle and Paige at our organization on 16th April who got the opportunity to meet some of the women who are supported by the microloans and got to interact with them on a one on one basis. Thanks and welcome again!

SUMMARY

We work on empowering around 80 vulnerable women and youth living in Kenya poor suburb through revolving funds and also by an individual follow up. Our goal is to enable them to start and run their own small businesses in order to sustain their families and also improve local and sustainable economy. Some of our members are HIV positive. We want to financially empower them, and thanks to economic independence they are no longer stigmatized by society!

To all our Supporters,

Thank you for your support in helping empower women and their businesses. Our microloans are really helping vulnerable women to start or run their small businesses.

New Business Idea

During our last meet up the members came up with a new business idea to be implemented as a group, where they will be making liquid soap and sell locally in hotels, schools etc. The profit from this business idea will go back to the business to help it grow to an even larger business. The money can also be loaned to the members so that they can boost their individual businesses if the need arises.

I say to all donors, thank you!

We welcome your continued support that helps provide microfinance loans to individuals. You are helping vulnerable women with the ability to become self-sufficient and provide basic necessities to their families. Every single donation we receive will help to eradicate poverty.

Much appreciation!

Thank you for your support in empowering small businesses. Our microloans are really helping vulnerable women to start or run their small businesses. Meet Mary one of the small business owners in Nairobi, she recently received a loan to boost her Kiosk.

This is what she had to say,

Hello, my name is Mary, I am very grateful for the loans that I received and I want to say thank you. I used my loan to stock my small Kiosk and since then I have been able to meet the basic needs of my family and pay school fees for my children. I manage to sustain my family in everything that they require and also to stock my kiosk since I have a lot of customers.

I say to all donors, thank you!

I ENVIRONMENT OF THE PROJECT 

We work on empowering around 80 vulnerable women and youth living in Kenya poor suburb through revolving funds and also by an individual follow up. Our goal is to enable them to start and run their own small businesses in order to sustain their families and also improve local and sustainable economy.

II FOCUS ON THE PAST 3 MONTHS

We managed to visit one of our group in Mkwachunyi,Taita Taveta county on 12/07/18 for a follow up with their small businesses. Thanks to our local donors we raised $500 which each of our members got an average of $125 and so far we have empowered around 40 women through the revolving fund program.

 III CHALLENGE AND UP COMING EVENTS

The main challenge they face in this area is the water shortage which leads to low yield.The women are forced to walk for a long distance in search of water and the vendors who sell to them raises the price such that getting enough for their agri-business becomes a big problem. They requested for storage tanks so that they can continue running their businesses to enhance food production, improve farming activities and ensure that they have access to clean water for domestic use throughout.

Having a water storage tank is going to enable them to have a constant supply of water even during those times when there are droughts. We would welcome any suggestions with lots of joy in order to improve the livelihood of these women.
