Its goals are to help women stabilize their income, raise their household standard of living, secure better opportunities for their children and trigger regional growth.
WMI has established a $175,000 revolving loan fund and issued over 1,200 loans to impoverished women living in over 60 rural villages in Kenya and Uganda.
