About this Campaign This projects will fund women businesses by issuing collateral-free, low interest-bearing loans, for as little as $50, to poor women of Uganda, northern region in both rural and urban to assist them in starting businesses, building assets and gaining business skills so that they can generate income on a long-term basis, permanently improving their household living standards, and achieving financial independence for themselves and their families.
The loan repayment period will be 6 months and the targeted businesses are selling cereals, milling corn and rice, vegetables and selling cloths and women owned small businesses.
Purewish Foundation Uganda (PWFU) will screen, train and issue loans of $50 - $250 to impoverished women to start businesses. PFU will organize borrower meetings, conduct site visits, provide ongoing business education and introduce women to dealing with the local bank.
