Only months ago an alleged coup in South Sudan has left hundreds dead, and many in the region concerned for what the coming months may bring for the world's youngest country. More than one million people have been forced from their homes by the ongoing conflict in South Sudan, the UN says. Of these, 803,200 have been displaced within the country, and another 254,000 have fled to neighboring countries, according to the latest UN report. It warns that the situation is likely to get worse as the violence continues.
We are thrilled to announce Hope Ofiriha is partnering with Deki UK micro finance, and the Troll tech Foundation (Kiva's partner) as their field partner in East Africa. Through this initiative Hope Ofiriha will be providing micro credit for entrepreneurial mothers to provide their families with basic necessities and pay school fees for their children.
With the loan from Troll tech we provided small loan to twenty clients to retail to make a huge profit to repay their loan on time while retaining big portion of the profit. These clients are doing in their tiny enterprise.
In March 37,898, 225 Ugandan Shillings (USD. 14,786.40) worth of new loans was funded via the Deki website. This is the biggest amount raised in one month to provide loan to 39 clients. In April ten clients will receive loans with funding from GlobalGiving, and 39 clients will receive loans with funding from Deki.
Some clients who returned when south Sudan got independence two years ago are returning to Kampala. They need a loan to start income generating activity in order to provide for their families and pay their children's school fees.
In the next quarter a new field update will be posted so that you get to know what the impact of your contribution is helping to create in the lives of the beneficiaries from the ground.
