The ability to express my ideas makes me feel Confident and Proud


You can make a huge difference by investing as low as $50 it can help change someone’s life together with her family.

Meet Eunice a mother of 3 who formally was illiterate and had no source of livelihood. Her joining int the microloan program not only provided her the opportunity to get microloan but also gave her a chance to join the adult literacy training that has changed her life priorities

“ The most important benefit is that feels confident and proud of me, my ability to express my ideas is something I never expected but after learning how to read and write I can manage my business better and I want to give all my children the opportunity to go to a school that’s why I invested my savings in buying a solar panel that can provide lighting to facilitate my children’s education I know they will change our community in future”

Women like Eunice is the reason why microloans and women’s empowerment is important because the benefits lift the entire community.

We are committed to continuing to support women with all the tools they need to achieve self- reliance and we cannot do it without you. Consider giving a gift of $50 to women in Uganda
