Thanks for your recent donation gift to Microloan for South Sudanese Refugee women project in Uganda.

We are happy to announce that Hope Ofiriha has received a loan of $6600 from Trolltech Foundation (Kiva's partner). The loan will be split into microloans in order to help the actual refugee family to move from one sack of burnt charcoal to ten - or from having salt money to funding children's education. Twenty families will benefit from this loan, and each will get a loan of $330-. When the amount is repaid from the actual refugee family, Hope Ofiriha will transfer these funds back to Stiftelsen Trolltech Foundation not later than May 30 2014.

With your donation, repaid loans, and a new loan from Trolltech Foundation, Hope Ofiriha will give loan to 30 clients on December 16. Our clients are making good progress out of poverty.

Our clients are eager to see this project progressing, but they still need your help to keep this project running. A new field report will be posted after three months where you get to know what impact your contribution has created, and the improvement it has given in the lives of beneficiaries.
