I used to face a lot of problems in farming, for example how to get fertiliser, but since Opportunity came, farming became a lot easier. Opportunity helped me, they gave me a loan to buy fertiliser and taught me how to farm properly.
Before Opportunity I would only get 3 bags at harvest, but when Opportunity came I got 9 bags. My life has changed.”
“Opportunity taught me how to save.
Now because I save the money, when my children's school fees are due I can pay or when they are sick I can send them to the hospital.
I am saving towards the welfare of my children and my siblings because I am the oldest of my siblings and must support them.”
“In our community the men have delegated all the responsibility of children to us as women. Being able to make my own money and run my business, I have managed to get more confidence. I am able to put my children through school without my husband’s support.
Now I am respected in the community. Opportunity came and taught us how to change our lives.”
Thank you for giving generously. Your support will enable more people to work their way out of poverty and establish lasting change for their families and communities.
