First and foremost, I would like to express my outmost gratitute towards our donors as well as global giving as a whole for all the support that you have given to our organisation.

We have had multiple meetings with the women that we have been supporting.Tumaini staff and the women themselves after much deliberation thought that it would be wise if they would have a business that would easily fund there small businesses and also create an opportunity for one of them to work.After much thought, discussion and consoltation we discovered that soap making which is currently a popular and booming business in Nairobi, would be the best suite since a couple of women in the group had previous experience and attest to its success rate.  .

So far the business is going well and the team is thinking of ways to fund and do it in a bigger scale due to its incredible success.It may be another way for the women to gain more funds to support themselves and even more women as the group is likely to grow in the near future.

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!
