You’d be surprised how much a tenner can do

We gave approximately £100 to a church in Butaleja Town to enable them to start a small loan scheme. Their primary focus is to help women develop their income generating projects. Recently a group of women (and one man) received loans ranging from about £3 to £15 to expand their small businesses; including selling fruit and vegetables, making cookies, selling second hand clothes and repairing radios.

Josephine, administrator for a little bit of HOPE (Uganda) will now monitor this small loan scheme to see how effective it is.
