Community Cash Box
Springboard for a small business
Women in rural villages often dream of running a small business, but they lack the capital to turn those dreams into reality. In places like Uganda, we help village women organize savings and loan associations, where they can pool together their household earnings in a strong box and take turns withdrawing micro-loans. After launching a small grocery store, tailor shop or other business they then repay their loans, filling the box with funds for another woman’s business plan.

“ I like being able to donate in my parents' name for birthdays, Christmas, Mother's and Father's Day. And they like knowing their gifts mean something.”
