Project Report | May 6, 2024
Meet Olivia

By Francis Mbewe | Project Leader

Olivia is 43 and has 3 children aged 7, 12, and 17. She said she is not having any more children because she is too busy with her business!

She runs a well-stocked, double-wide shop and small café, selling everything from, soda, beer, snacks, airtime, batteries and pens to laundry detergent. Soda and beer sell very quickly in the hot dry months of December - March. One crate of soda costs her about $6 for 24 bottles and she sells the crate for $10. These days she sells about 3 crates/day, making a profit of about $12/day on soda alone. The daily profit on beer adds another $5/day.

She was proud to report that each and every day she saves $2 in a small box. She was also proud to report that she uses her profit to pay school fees for the children, all of who are doing quite well. 

To our donors thank you so much for your continued support to make this a reality to more women like Olivia
