Review for Womens Global Empowerment Fund, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

From the first day, I encountered WGEF and it's wonderful Executive Director/ Founder, Karen Sugar, her passion, commitment, and visionary leadership I knew this was the kind of organization that makes a real difference in women's lives. For several years I have gladly worked with WGEF and I have seen the impact created by WGEF in the lives of women and their families. WGEF offers the best approach to sustainable empowerment, its comprehensive selection of targeted programs and support services that include micro-loans, literacy education, legal services, health education, and leadership development programs are designed to strengthen social systems, amplify women's voices, reduce poverty the best way to address systemic inequalities. I'm so proud to work with an organization that is making a real and sustainable impact in Uganda.

Review for Womens Global Empowerment Fund, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

WGEF is providing the best example of democratising aid, reaching out to rural Northern Uganda and providing a vehicle for women to determine their goals and aspirations makes it uniques. providing microfinance together with social programming is revolutionary. I have seen women in Gulu whose self esteem, confidence, and their general well-being improved as a result of WGEF's intervention in Northern Uganda.

Review for Womens Global Empowerment Fund, Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Miriam Akech is my name, Im 28 years old and lives in the town of Gulu in Northern Uganda. Im married with three children, two of them currently in school. For the past 4 years, I have been working hard to manage my small restaurant, which sells local, serving breakfast, lunch and supper every day.

To help expand my business, I requested a loan of 500,000 Ugandan Shillings from WGEF to buy stock for my restaurant, and my stock. My hopes were that in the future I will be able to stock up my restaurant.

Cliet Quote of accomplishment :
“Before I received the Loan I was working alone in my restaurant, currently I employ 2 helpers in the restaurant because we have many customers and sometimes we do outside catering for small community meetings, I have been able to repay my loan in time, I have already applied for the second cycle. What is very important to me I have been able to save 40,000 shillings, and I need to add more saving. My target is to take up 4 loans recycles then I will start using my savings as capital”.
I thank you for giving me the opportunity that has helped my business to grow
God Bless you,
Miriam- WGEF client Gulu
