KIDA EMPOWERS WOMEN FARMERS

The UN has established new goals to achieve by 2030.  Goal #2 is to end hunger and improve nutrition. KIDA is engaged in a program to improve nutrition for women and their children (see previous article here). In addition they address the needs of women farmers whose work in the fertile, family-owned small farms of the Ruwenzori foothills provides the major food source. KIDA's SACCO microloans assist these women to purchase tools and seeds.
