Mboya Church Savings Group

On Wednesday, I accompanied a group of US visitors as they met with one of the savings groups Hope has started.  Hope Rwanda is working with local Anglican churches to provide savings programs to members of the community who do not have the access or means to utilize traditional banks or even microfinance insitutions. Our team in Rwanda has trained over 1,000 leaders of savings group in the last six months. The savings groups are well-suited for rural areas and extremely poor communities, and the church also sees these groups as an effective means to assist the reconciliation process in Rwanda.
