To learn more about microfinancing, we went to visit Reach Out Mubya (ROM), an organization those battles with the angel of death, AIDs, head on. One of the community support service programs ROM does is called the Bread of Life, an initiative to introduce their clients to microfinance. Through this, ROM connects the people in need with Village Savings and Loans Association (VSLR), in which a group a formed in order to start a saving and loan system. ROM hope by having their clients work with VSLA, they will be able to save money and develop their businesses, raising their self-esteem, and help them feel in control of their life again after going through such an stressful experience. Though, us Americans may not necessarily need to develop a new loan and saving culture, I think it would be great for us to develop trust for each other in our own communities. Uganda has a culture excels with this kind of passion, with their values of the second commandant of generosity, and that I probably one of the reasons why it has such a warm atmosphere here (and probably because of the weather too :p).
