Rotary and the Savings Revolution

The Informal Economy
According to a recent report by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, 60% of the world's population participate in the informal sector - these are the legions of subsistence farm owners, market traders, street food sellers, seamstresses, and cobblers we see when we visit a poor country.
Since the 1970s, international development practitioners, including many International Rotarians, have supported the idea that with a small loan, those running "microbusinesses" in this informal economy will begin to prosper. Over the past several years, however, a growing body of evidence shows that while those with the best established businesses are prospering, most loans are used for immediate needs - food, medicine, school fees. For those living on the edge of survival, repaying these often costly loans is very difficult.

Attending a Zoom meeting of the Yumbe, Uganda provisional Rotary Club, my eyes welling up with emotion, I reached out in chat to another Zoomer who had just wiped her cheek. She admitted she too was tearing up. The club is not yet officially recognized by Rotary International, the women are well below the poverty line but they are already doing service projects.
