Kiva Lending Team: 'SALT' of INHA SIFE
We loan because...
A big part of population relies on salt production from Katwe lake. The working conditions are very poor. The workers don't have any protective gears so that they easily get injured by sharp salt. But there is no medical service in the town. Single moms of Katwe are earger to work at the lake regardless of poor working conditions since they need a regular income for keeping their families. Therefore, INHA SIFE of Korea is planning to raise funds to buy salt ponds where the women can regularly work for in a better condition.
INHA SIFE has already selected potential workers for the salt pond that we will by with microcredit fund. The potential workers are all single moms with many children. They are looking forward to working for the pond. When they finish repaying the fund for the pond, the pond will be co-possessed by the workers.
