SUPPORT krma-US PARTNERS
krma-US Partners seeks capital investment to support its first project in Kaberamaido District, Uganda. Using an innovative capacity-building model rather than a micro-financing one, the women have no loans to repay. Funds given are matched by KRMA women's time and sweat equity.
The project teaches women to reinvest in their business and their children’s education so they can attain self-sufficiency and avoid dependency on foreign aid. KRMA directs a portion of each harvest's profits into the next harvest’s projected expenses. The women use another portion to pay school fees, ensuring that their daughters and sons can remain in school through secondary school and beyond.
We invite you to join us in
the early years of this exciting partnership!
