ABSTRACT

The purpose of the research was to examine the role played by Savings and Credit Cooperatives

in eradicating pove1iy among women in Makindye Division Kampala-Uganda. In conducting the

study, the descriptive survey design was used and both the questionnaire and interviews were

employed as the main research instruments. The purposive sampling technique was used in the

study and the sample from which the data was collected was made up of ordinary as well as

members of the management committee drawn from the Dembe Women's SACCO. The

Cooperative Development Officer from the Ministry of Small and Medium Enterprises and

Cooperative Development was also pmi and parcel of the sample that participated in the study.

Tables were used to show the responses and inferences which were drafted from the quantified

data. Findings of the study revealed that women in Makindye faced a number of socio-economic

challenges in their day to day lives. Dembe Women's SACCO was established as a way of

trying to eradicate pove1iy among women in the face of the socio-economic challenges they

faced. However, in trying to eradicate pove1iy among women, the SACCO also faced numerous challenges that inhibit them to fully maximize their capacity to eradicate poverty among women.
