Women access finance

A community loan fund

Women of Ochelakur

Project Duration
Three years

We are targeting to raise 10 million shillings as seed money for establishing and growing a loan scheme fund through which 500 women will:

  • Access finance and financial literacy.
  • Start and or operate viable businesses through which they will earn a living
  • Meet the basic needs – food, water, clothes, shelter – of their households.

Please give in support of households of a disadvantaged traditionally fishing community in Ochelakur in Kalaki District in North-Eastern Uganda who are no longer permitted fishing livelihoods due to government fishing restrictions on Lake Kyoga. Your donation will facilitate them to transition to other livelihood options and to improved quality of life.

  • Donate via Mobile Money to +256 776 469 035 registered to Oluka Robert
  • Donate via GlobalGiving

Oluka Robert, a born of Ochelakur and a beneficiary of our mentoring programme. During the covid-induced lockdown, using the little personal money that he could spare, he bailed out others in his community who were struggling with access to finance.  In doing so, Robert has gained deep insights into the status quo in his community; making him highly qualified to be this project’s Team Leader.
