"There are some things you will do for someone, the person will continue to shed tears of joy…" – Beneficiary’s neighbor
Stella, a widow with thre (3) chldren was struggling to feed her kids after the loss of her husband. Although she is a trained tailor, but, she could not afford to replace her broken sewing machine. She also could not afford to pay rent for a store at an accessible location for her tailoring work.
Without aceess to a good working sewing machine and a store, she had no source of income and was struggling to feed her children.
As a result, her her kids dropped out of school. She strugged and could not get any help from anyone.
Through the Women Empowerment Project (WE Project), WealthyGen established a custom tailoring business for Stella, so that she can use her already acquired skill to earn sustainable livelihood and feed her children.
We purchased brand new sewing machine, weaving machine, tailoring materials and supplies. WealthyGen also opened and funded a savings account for Stella.
In addition, we provided financial literacy training to equip her with the knowledge to use financial services, manage her money and grow her business.
Through women empowerment, Stella now has a sustainable livelihood activity. Through this, she can earn sustainable income, ffed her family and send her kids back to school.
