Red Earth RISING gave out micro loans to several Acholi women living in the refugee camp in Kampala. So many great things came out of these loans beyond what the money could buy. We are proud to report there was a 100% repayment rate and that the trust circle model was effective at organizing and energizing the women.
We would like to introduce you to some of these amazing women.
Meet Pasca: she runs a tiny (one pot) restaurant out of the front of her hut. She has eight children and was able to use the profits from her restaurant to send her second youngest daughter to school.
