About Us

WMI makes loans/business training available to impoverished women who have no access to banking services. Our loans and training promote women's economic participation and carries hope of prosperity to poor, rural areas of Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. By providing access to collateral-free loans, training, and education through peer groups - impoverished, rural women experience immediate outcomes of launching micro enterprises, improving their business skills, and starting down the path to accessing conventional banking services.The larger community improves exponentially as women increase economic opportunities for their households, increase local development through employment, and create community wealth.
