2020 was a tough year for many people. In March, I had to stop going to work becuase of Covid-19. I was only 3 months in the job. I was confused and anxious. This job meant alot for me and my family.
In May, I started looking for various options that could help me get some finances. As the first born in a family of 6 and the only provider, I needed a job urgently.
I was introduced to Garden of Hope Foundation by a friend who went through the entrepreneurship training. Seeing that life was difficult, I turned to one place I knew I would get hope.
After sharing my situation with the team , they invited me to join their one month entrepreneurship training program. This training was being offered to support people like me who had lost their sources of income because of Covid-19.
In June, I graduated from the program and I was given usd 100 to start a small business. The business has been running for 8 months. Through the business, I am able to pay my house rent, get food and support some of my siblings through schoool. The bussiness currently make a weekly proffit of usd 50.
Thank you for your support
