Revolving loan members meet in small village groups and receive training and support. Small lending circle members meet regularly and contribute to a common “pot” each meeting, plus making loan decisions together. Loans are for income projects. In addition to Bukoba, BUWEA loan groups have expanded into Arusha, Mwanza, Tabora and Dar es Salaam.
During 2018, these women involved in this project saw their efforts to create a daycare succeed. The parents, guardians, and the daycare provide the children with all their basic needs, including nutritious food, games and sports activities, and access to outreach services provided by health workers and others. Every year 10-15 of these preschool students are enrolled in standard level 1 Government School or Private School. The dream is to be able to accept more preschoolers so that their parents can work, knowing their children are nourished and safe.
Women for Women has earmarked in September $762.69 for the Revolving Loan projects with BUWEA as this month’s allocation. THANK YOU!
