Our February 1% will supply 29 small business loans to entrepreneurs in western Uganda changing the lives of 174 people. To date we've made an incredible £183K worth of loans to 1,193 different entrepreneurs in seven countries. As all this money gets repaid it gets reused to help more budding businesses, meaning even more communities can be transformed with our 1%.
