How Saving UGX 5000 a Week Changed Namayanja's Life

What started as a simple dream has turned a 45-year-old woman into a land owner and an established businesswoman.

Harriet Namayanja, a regular listener to CBS radio, was struggling to make ends meet as a poultry farmer when she heard on radio a discussion about a project to empower women through savings and loan associations (PEWOSA).
