"I no longer wait for fish. I’ve learned how to catch them."
Future Hope Africa’s entrepreneur training has transformed my family and my life.
Times were desperate.
My husband and I were both without jobs while trying to support our three children.
Although I have a high school diploma, I had no formal occupational training nor money for continued schooling. Although friends and family helped out, the financial strain steadily increased.
In distress, I went to Future Hope Africa.
FHA allowed me to enroll in their entrepreneurs training course for free. After I finished, they awarded me a grant of $100 to begin my business.
Now I sell shoes. I wear my merchandise on my head and market it on the street and door to door – wherever people are.
While this may seem like a small step forward, the results have been dramatic:
My family eats three times a day. Before they ate once and sometimes not at all.
I can buy my children’s required school uniform and pay their fees.
I can pay my rent.
I tithe to my church.
This is in addition to unexpected expenses such as medical bills. Our needs have always been met.
The survival of my family still depends on my work. But I am thankful for it and full of energy for the task.
Future Hope Africa’s entrepreneurial training course gave me the education and confidence to run a business. I manage my finances well, saving and investing in order to be successful in the long term.
I give thanks to the Eternal God for the compassion and wisdom that FHA has toward people in difficulty. I pray He will bless and multiply the days of my teachers so they can lead a boundless number of people toward their potential.
