Economic Empowerment /Micro Revolving Credits
Despite the different Governmental programs aimed at reducing abject poverty among the rural populace in Uganda, there is still a very big problem where over 75% (CESA-Uganda assessment 2017) of the people in Uganda are still living on less than 1$ per day, hence living below the poverty line.
CESA-Uganda works to reduce the poverty challenge through supporting the rural women and youth farming communities who lives on less than 1$ a day to increase on their household incomes in two ways:
1. Give them micro agriculture income generation profitable projects of both high value crops and animals like vegetables, mushrooms, cereals, legumes, poultry, piggery, dairy goats and cows
2.Give affordable low interest micro loans/credits to women and invest or establish micro low income generations projects like vegetables, mushrooms, cereals, legumes, poultry, piggery, dairy goats and cows.
The reason for provision of the above two (2) services to the rural women and youth is to increase on their household incomes and be in position of meeting household basics like paying school fees for their children, better shelter and medication, hence leading to their improved standards of living.
