Village Savings and Loan Associations for women in Eswatini

Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLAs) enable rural communities to finance their own development. Through the deposits and contributions made, VSLAs provide much needed funds to invest in income-generating activities. The savings accrued provide members with loans to start and develop their own businesses.

Women entrepreneurs who need quick and affordable credit should consider joining VSLAs. They are a good alternative source of finances because of their friendly interest rates. Below is a list of organizations which provide training for VSLAs in Eswatini.
