OUR CURRENT PROJECTS
Mama Biashara has, to date, micro financed and supported around 300 small businesses for women, generally, ones with families to support. Just £25 will start a business selling vegetables or second hand clothes. Even £5 has set up a chicken-head seller in Mathare (they make a delicious meal if you know how to cook them!) and she is still going strong. Having their own business transforms the lives of these women – it makes them independent, able to feed and house their families. And, more than that, the psychological and emotional lift it gives them is as good as medicine!
