Savings and Business Skills


Julienne is 75 years old, lives on the outskirts of Kigali, Rwanda and has a son. But he lives apart from her, and Julienne needed a safe and reliable home to live in alone. Her local Mothers’ Union savings group has been a true blessing, providing Julienne with a secure place to save enough money so that she could build a house. Without this support she could have been facing instability in her retirement.

£17 could support a woman like Julienne to attend and be part of a savings and loans association, allowing group members to save collectively and provide each other with loans to buy household items, start businesses, care for others in the community and build a secure future for their families.
