Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Disappointed

When my wife and I got married, she had nothing. As a matter of facts she had no job, no no money I mean she was there. I struggled so much just to ensure that he had something to do. In January this year, I opened for her a business and she started working. The business was so good and booming such that by March, she was getting a profit of about one hundred thousand from the business. With time, she started being so rude especially when i had no money. She started dating other men and by April this year she disappeared with everything and till this day i have never seen her.
