Innovation Is A Powerful Tool For Development

My name is Jamilla Fabian. My father is a member of a group that has really helped him and our entire family. Since he joined this group 5 years ago while I was in class 8,I have seen the benefit of the group drift though to impact positively in our family. I am a direct beneficiary who drew the great financially support in terms of school fees that has enabled me complete my education. More that that such funds my father has been accessing since 2007 have enabled him engage in projects that have stood firm as support to our economic stability
