BBI Board member Karen Zelevinksy recently asked the Buhanga Thuligahuma Women’s Collective if any members were interested in receiving microloans of $500.
Four women took on loans from Karen, for a variety of agricultural projects. They were:
* Masiki Lazer, for palm oil, sundried and smoked fish
* Biira DeFroza, for beans and cassava flour
* Faisi Bwambale, for passion fruits and Irish potatoes
* Musungu Joyce, for cassava
The four women are already paying back the loans, and they are quite happy. The $500 has enabled them to start and expand their businesses.
