Our original project when we began our work in Uganda in 2006, the women’s groups have flourished and their enthusiasm has been inspiring. All the groups received a microfinance loan from Amaha’ We Uganda, or Hope for Uganda as it was then, to set up a small business using the skills they already had. Each woman has used their loan to sell crafts, grow crops and breed animals, making a small profit to help feed their families and send their children to school.
Each group has now repaid their loan so that the money can be recycled to a new group, and our fellowship with the woman when we return every year has grown. We learn so much from their commitment and their faith.
