Thank You for your support of Opportunity’s ministry. Your gifts are directly impacting families across the globe. Mother and sole provider of four, Ndershioso struggled to provide for her family by buying fruit from local farms and selling it in nearby markets. Before joining the Amaniya-bwana (Peace of the Lord) Trust Group in Tengeru, Tanzania, and receiving her first loan of $260, she found it very challenging to grow her business – she could only buy 28 bananas at a time. With the help of Opportunity Tanzania, Ndershioso has increased her buying power, more than doubling her income. She is very grateful for the transformation her family is achieving – now all of her children are in school, something that would have been impossible without your support.
