Johann Schill, a board member and lecturer for artisanal projects at HIFA, supported the expansion of vocational training center WAKISO in Uganda by donating 3,500 € for equipment and tools such as welding and drilling machines, sewing machines, and gas stoves. He also discussed an agricultural project and potential cooperation with project lecturer Dipl. Ing. Festus Imarhiagbe.
HIFA microcredits help women and men in Nigeria to start small businesses or run market stalls. HIFA charges only a small processing fee of 1%. Since 2009, over €10,000 has been disbursed as start-up capital, and many applicants have successfully repaid loans. Due to the project’s success, we are requesting further support in the amount of €10,000.
