KAMPALA, UGANDA — St. Francis Nsambya Home Care treats more than 7,000 HIV-positive clients annually. This year, due to budget cuts from foreign donors, the clinic discontinued most of its community outreach and HIV education programs. The only remaining program is the Revolving Fund which provides financial assistance to HIV-positive business owners in Kampala and nearby communities.

Since 2011, money from the Revolving Fund has helped 68 HIV positive business owners increase their capital, beef up their product selection and ultimately provide more for themselves and their families. Check out the video here.
