Supporting Women in Kenya

Chama is a Swahili word referring to an informal self-help group in which members pool resources. Islamic Relief is strengthening the chama in Kenya by establishing group savings and loans associations, helping women in arid areas take a step towards self-reliance. For many, access to a small loan is a catalyst for starting their journey out of poverty. The process starts with joining a local savings and loans group. Members, often women, pool their savings and borrow for their families’ needs. Members repay the loans to the group at a small service charge.
