Review for WOMENS MICROFINANCE INITIATIVE CORPORATION, Bethesda, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

WMI has grown quickly in the past two years mainly because of very dedicated volunteers in the US and very enthusiastic borrowers in Uganda. WMI has made an effort to work with borrowers to figure out the best way to meet their credit needs. With loans, borrowers have been able to start and expand businesses, which have given them a more regular income. With extra income they have sent more children to school, improved their homes, and purchased better health care. Loans are making a difference for these women in Uganda, and WMI is working hard to continue to support them.
