This younger widow along with 49 others in early April was offered the opportunity to start up a small business in her village by The Widows' Cause. This was done by a loan of $115 repayable over 6 months. The journey of breaking the poverty cycle in their lives had begun. Incredibly they start to feel more self confident, develop a sense of self respect and along with that comes hope and purpose for the future. At the end of August the Widows' Cause will be adding another 48 widows to this programme. this will bring the total to 168 widows involved in a small business opportunity. Sooooooooo worth it.
