Aisha is a leader and entrepreneur in Kajumbi, a slum in Nateete Kampala supported by Jumpstart Africa. She has benefitted from our loan program to grow her businesses and says she is happy with our services. She is also a chairperson of Kajumbi group, one of the many we work with to empower slum women with financial services. We are committed to supporting more women like her to build their businesses and realise their dreams.
It is women like Aisha that we work with to deliver change to the people that need it most. In working with communities, development agencies should not just bring interventions with out identifying key local leaders in the area who can help with introducing them to the community. In our work, we have got to realise that it is people like Aisha that actually inspire the most change in their communities.
Aisha has helped in mobilising other women in the community. As we give out loans, she helps in identifying those who are credit worthy and will passionately see to it that they pay back. As she does that, she is also growing her businesses and inspiring many in her community. We celebrate leaders like her who selflessly give themselves to empower others.
