Empowering women through community-based savings groups

17 February 2020

In Ganj, a village in the Khatlon province of Tajikistan, a community-based savings group supported by AKF through the ESCoMIAD programme boasts 40 members - 35 of them female. Today, they are reportedly in their fourth cycle of activity, having blossomed from a small group of only 17 members. The group has accumulated over $4,000 in savings, with the value of loans increasing significantly over the last year.
