Alisat Naigaga was able to begin a business of selling second-hand clothing, and to date she has a target of buying land so that she can construct rather than renting. The savings group has dearly helped them because they are in position to pay off fees for their children at school and also have acquired some nutritional supplements.
 

So often, these dreams start out as an impossibility, but through these savings groups — many of these dreams have become reality.

Goals are being reached, community is being built and we are training our people to start their own businesses. Want to know how YOU can help?
