CWDA provides microcredit at very low interest rates to women so that they can invest in establishing or improving small businesses. The women on the program are provided with the means to improve their living standards and to promote their status within the community. Our continued presence and long history in the communities allows us to support these women and advice them suitably in their chosen investment opportunities.
Women are encouraged to establish Loan Groups to support each other and to develop savings. CWDA does not charge interest on loans given to families in extreme poverty, to people living with HIV/AIDS and/or those who have lost a family member to AIDS.
