Jinja Entrepreneurs Programme (JEP)
Kale Uganda takes a holistic approach to local economic development through the JEP. Through JEP’s microcredit programme, approved community members in groups of five receive loans and participate in a twenty-week long entrepreneurship. The micro finance project supports over 10 different groups of women and youth with start-up loans at very low interest rates. The project provides loans to primary to women, teachers, and young adults at an interest rate designed to merely facilitate the recovery of Kale’s operational cost.
