Uganda: Breeder offers employees perspective with microcredit

Royal Van Zanten, a breeder operating in Uganda (among other countries) has made many successful microloans in recent years. Doing so has made it possible for the employees to buy their own land or a house and to pay school tuition. ‘It gives us both more security and more opportunities’, said one employee of this horticultural company.


Social impact
Employees are receiving financial advice and assistance in managing their money. Helping employees save enables them to buy their own land or build a house. The employer is also offering small loans that employees can use to realise a dream like starting their own business. One employee, for example, started her own design company and is now producing beautiful designs and printed material. Her talents are being realised more than ever, and she is using her profits to pay the school tuition for her nephews. She is also providing the Dutch cutting producer’s employees with printed T-shirts and sportswear.
