Our team in Uganda have been working really hard with the people who have been attending our empowering programmes over the years. They have spent quality time with each person, having meetings one on one and group discussions and helped them to work out what they can actively do to help themselves and their families have a better future. They are desperate to make changes and prepared to work hard to do so; it just helps when you can share your thoughts and ideas with someone who can help turn it into reality. It’s all about how to make a small business sustainable which will therefore generate income for the future. Our team have worked closely alongside them, guiding and advising them on taking those important first steps, finding out their interests, establishing a business plan and working out how they can facilitate this.

We now want to ask for your help. A donation of £25 will help break the cycle of poverty that so many are facing, by helping them and their business have a space at a local market. For some, they have the idea and the drive, but they are in the wrong location, so would benefit from moving, hence the need for support with start-up costs. For some, they need extra help to increase their resources. A carpenter, for example, needs a little extra funds to buy more materials, to be able to make more furniture, in order to sell more and therefore boost his business. This helps to make the whole process much more sustainable as there’s more income to be generated. This has then meant that they have been able to pay back the £25, have a much stronger position in the market, increase their business and the £25 can then help someone else.

With a donation towards this micro finance project, it could help someone invest in the potential for a profitable business, helping to provide food and the needs of a family. It’s all about helping people become self-sustainable and them a helping hand, which will make the world of difference and £25 is all it takes to help make this a reality.
