The communities that work with us on our successful Obumwe Micro Finance scheme take their responsibilities seriously. They have decided to set up a committee of 10 members to represent the two sub-counties where the loans are distributed. This committee will be responsible for vetting loan applications and ensuring that repayments are made on time so that the next groups in line can benefit. This is a great example walking alongside communities and providing opportunities not aid.
We currently have 12 loans out with different groups but there is a continuing demand for more first time loans and higher value second round loans. You can contribute to the Obumwe fund by donating here
