Micro Enterprise Model

Woman making paper beads with a baby in her lap

ROWAN is not only changing the lives of individuals, but entire village communities. ROWAN has created a Savings & Loans Association, whereby friends join groups and save money together for business start-ups within their community.

3 Simple Steps for Success

1. Each woman must join a Savings & Loans group for learning how to start their jewelry project with a small business loan offered through the group.

2. After small loan is granted unanimously by the group, the artisan will purchase her materials & begin training to make paper beads & jewelry designs.

3. ROWAN USA then purchases the pieces at an excellent price, whereby the Ugandan women can pay back their loans & begin saving for their future.
