Today was loan distribution day for two of our new loan groups. These days are always my favorite days in Uganda. We were met, as we often are, by women dancing and singing and screaming with unbridled joy! It was also a delight to see the reactions of the five other travelers with me. They were thrilled at the reception they received and loved giving these women that little hand up that they so desperately need. A loan of $100 to $300 — such a small cost to turn a life around. Giving is as great a joy as receiving!
