Enhanced Financial Access for Rural Women Focus (Microcredit) Uganda

The project aims at promoting access to alternative financial services to 300 rural women and youth at community level in Kayunga district within Kangulumira sub-county. The beneficiaries are investing the loans in agriculture, aqua culture and retail businesses among others to earn a living. The project mobilizes women and youth into groups through which they are trained in financial literacy and entrepreneurship. The trainings also support the groups with knowledge on suitable investment options.  The trained groups are then prepared to apply for small business loans under the group co-guaranteeing system for financial inclusion.  The loan system is supported by community extension workers as well as local leaders.  The groups and individuals receive continuous mentorship, monitoring and support. The methodology adopted supports increased access to credit services for individual and women groups hence contributing to women financial emancipation and promote gender equality.
