Hope and hard work through microfinance to fight poverty in Uganda

There are baby steps that can change a life for ever when you live in poverty. Microfinance is one of the most effectiveness, as economists and experts from all over the world say, including Nobel prize winner and micro credit guru Muhammad Yunus.

We give hope and support to low income individuals in Uganda, with a special focus on women, providing financial services and empowerment to get them out of poverty and earn the right to live a proper life as everyone deserves. Founded by the President of Caritas Uganda, Archibishop Cyprian K. Lwanga and working closely to local Community Based Associations we follow an integrated approach that tackles poverty at the grassroots helping more than 4000 people every year.

Not only do we support them to shape their own self-sustainance ideas but we assist people gain skills in entrepreneurship, leadership and confidence in society.
