Impact Story – Aisha in Uganda

This is the story of Aisha.

Aisha joined one of our Village Savings and Loans projects in Uganda.

This has empowered her to learn about saving money, provided access to small loans and given her the confidence to start a range of agricultural based income generating activities.

Watch Aisha explain the positive impact This Is EPIC have had on her life.


Our Village Savings and Loans projects are self-managed groups where members have a safe place to save their money, to access small loans.

Members can take out loans to invest in income generating activities to raise household income.

As a result, members experience significant improvements in household health and wellbeing, and an overall improved quality of life.

When poor people have access to finance, they can lift themselves out of poverty.


Our work focuses on empowering community driven change and providing a help up rather than a handout.
