Meet Grace- A Success Story


Women for Women International program graduates use the knowledge and skills they gain in our programs to improve the lives of their families and communities. Meet Grace, a WfWI-Nigeria program graduate. Thanks to generous donors like you, she can now send her children to school!

Grace has had to cope with many tragedies in her young life. At just 28, she had given birth to five children; two of whom died. She worried constantly about not being able to support her family with the work she performed helping her husband on their farm.

For years, all of the money Grace earned from selling produce at the market went to feeding her family — until she enrolled with Women for Women International.

Grace took business courses to learn more about how to run a successful small business. With the sponsorship money she received, she was able to build up her capital, and now she is making enough money to send her children to school.

About her new life, Grace says, "I feel so good about myself."
