improving women's lives one loan at a time.
this isn't charity, it's change
Zawadisha provides small loans to rural Kenyan women to help finance their livelihoods.
We remove the barriers for rural women to access clean energy and water products by eliminating up-front costs through an in-house financing and distribution program. Zawadisha provides loans for items like solar lamps, rain water tanks, and clean cook stoves, delivers these items directly to rural villages, and provides after-sale services like trainings in leadership, financial literacy, and micro-enterprise.
