Spreading The Joy

Joyful Women is an organization that promotes women economic empowerment and financial inclusion, through the unique model of Table Banking. Our table banking convenes communities of women by pooling their resources to improve livelihoods.

Table Banking is a group-based resource mobilization concept in which a group of between 10 to 30 members gather every month to save and borrow.

During their gathering, members place their savings on the table, from a minimum of Kshs. 200 (USD 2) to any amount decided by the group which is set as their maximum saving.

Members are then able to borrow immediately from the money collected to boost their income generating livelihoods.
