Ever since I started my project, I focused on training and empowering women. My ambition is to train more than a thousand women, and hopefully my dream will soon come true.

In the morning I work in a knitting factory starting at 6 AM, when I come back from work I work in many different areas. One of my projects is that I’m learning to buy used and old furniture items and resell them for a fair price. My unemployed husband and kids go fishing so we can sell the fish for a good price. Recently, I took a loan from Microfund for Women so that I can buy the items for my main project, which really helped boost my project. Everything is becoming very expensive nowadays and I must keep on thinking of new sources of income.
Thank God, my project has succeeded and I am now able to provide a decent living for my family along with my husband, and I am even learning how to drive. My dream is to own a truck in the near future. To transfer all the furniture, I trade at a low cost.
