Support the Sparrow Guardians' Saving Scheme
It's hard to save money when you are surrounded by need. Twenty parents and guardians of our community have started a savings club whereby they meet weekly, and each one contributes a minimum of 1,000 shillings (about 28 cents) to a "kitty." They can borrow from the "kitty", and pay back at 10% interest, which is what keeps it growing. As it's just starting, it would be helpful to have a bit more in the "kitty" to encourage borrowing, to help it grow. Members borrow for school fees for children, or to start or increase their small businesses.
