Seeing the women's groups in action was one of the most powerful aspects of the study tour to the Uganda Epicenters. It's amazing what they have done - some of them in their 30's and others in their 60's. Improving their homes, building new brick homes, learning how to garden effectively so they can grow more crops, developing joint ventures like a piggery. And a major increase in self-esteem - how nice it was to have "money of their own" - earned by taking their loans (average $40) and growing the investment.
Almost all of these farm women looked ELEGANT - dressed beautifully, bright crisp clean clothes with lots of style - beautiful hair dressing, etc. Inspirational to see people doing this under their conditions of no running water, no electricity, no plumbing, etc.
