Kisoboka Africa team has started carrying out a survey to establish the poverty levels in the region with goal of creating pathways to ensure financial inclusion and youth empowerment in underserved communities. To achieve this, we are intending to scale-up school community banking (SCOBAs) activities to more communities in Lwengo district.
School community banks are school based groups of parents who save and borrow money to embark on income generating initiatives that are used to finance children’s education and improve their livelihoods. SCOBAs also provide parents with business skills and individual technical support in their businesses to improve their incomes. In that respect, we are conducting a baseline survey among the potential beneficiaries of Kisoboka programs.
