Opportunity can change everything.

    With support and training, families will be equipped to save for the future.

A gift that changed everything for Christiana....

Christiana’s story is one of remarkable resilience and entrepreneurial spirit. Despite growing up in extreme poverty and facing challenges, she found the determination to improve her life and her children’s futures.

With her first loan of $10 USD, Christiana began selling small items. With her hardwork and determination, she has transformed her business from a humble roadside table to a thriving market shop.

What's perhaps even more remarkable, is the transformative impact of her journey on the next generation.

Her children have grown and have become the first in their community to attend university. Christiana radiates with pride, knowing that they are well-equipped for their futures.

The cycle of poverty has been replaced with a new cycle of hope and transformation! That's the potential of opportunity!

"My life of poverty was grim, but it has certainly ended with my generation!"

- Christiana
