Review for WOMENS GLOBAL EMPOWERMENT FUND, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After a friend told me wonderful things about Women's Global Empowerment Fund, I decided to accept her invitation to join the Resource Development Committee. I have been impressed by the mission, the staff, the results, the other volunteers and the passionate founder and director, Karen Sugar. It's amazing to me that our average loan of only $57 can help lift a woman in Uganda out of the cycle of extreme poverty when she joins with other woman to start a business. It's unbelievable to me that out of the 1,300 loans we have given out so far, ALL of them have been repaid without default! This program is working, and it's working well. It's changing lives in post-conflict Uganda, and I'm proud to be a part of it.
