About this project

Hi. Thank you very much for your interest in my project. My name is Andy and I am a humanitarian photographer from Uganda now living in the USA.  I would like to publish an inspiring pictorial book that will depict the hope that micro-finance can bring to individuals and families. I am a poster child of the benefits of micro-finance, having grown up in a very poor in a poor country and yet making it somehow.

My story is not unique! It is a story of millions of people around the world, in fact, one billion people, whose dreams could be made real through small loans. I want to get stories of those people that have been changed, and those who look towards the future with hope, unbowed by current challenges and circumstances.

This will be the initial book project, estimated to have one hundred days of powerful images and reflections/devotionals/inspiration from 100 unique writers from different walks of life. In future, we will do a 365 day daily inspirational, but these are the initial steps. I would like to capture stories in Asia, South America, Eastern Europe and Africa. Poverty has no boundaries, but love conquers all things.
