This microproject will change the lives of MC and her four year old son by providing a scholarship for M C to study Accounting. With a job in Accounting M C will no longer have to sell used clothes on the street corner with her mother to help support herself and her son as she will have a steady job with benefits, including health care. She will be able to provide a brighter, healthier future for herself and her son and contribute to the household.
M C lives with her mother and her 4 year old son. M Cs son was born pre-maturely and needed two eye operations at a young age. He required constant care for his first three years of life, but is now well and in kindergarten. M C wants to study accounting to provide a better future for her son, but she and her mother barely make ends meet with the sale of used clothing and cannot afford the monthly school fees plus books and materials.
This microproject will pay for one year of studies in Accounting for M C providing her monthly fees, books and school materials. M C's mother is very supportive and will care for M C 's son in the mornings while she is in classes. With an education in Accounting, M C will have the means to provide for herself and her son and contribute to the household.
