The VSLA model is a tried and tested way to have a lasting impact on participants – both in terms of empowering members with financial skills and knowledge, and practically growing their savings.
Alongside establishing the savings group, the project will help to train participants in record-keeping, financial management, and entrepreneurship and business idea training.
Focused on empowering women
Recognising that women and children are those most marginalised, the Ulalo project actively works to tackle inequalities in tea communities. The project is helping to empower women by enhancing their economic resilience — breaking down barriers to finance, building confidence and encouraging decision making. These activities can often result in increasing household incomes for families.
