Obumwe Business start-up is a microfinance loan mainly for women to start-up a business or to grow an existing one.
Since we started the programme less than 2 years ago, over 50 unsecured loans of between £250 and £750 have been made to women-led community groups to finance income-generating projects.The loans funded a variety of projects, mostly agricultural, including bee-keeping, livestock rearing and crop growing.
The project is self-funding and we are proud of its 100% repayment record. We aim to expand this project to benefit more women-led community projects by providing access to capital and business skills to help them to grow and add value to their community led projects, particularly in the field of agro-processing.
