Meet Zarquona- A success Story


Forced into marriage at 15, Zarquona was widowed one year later and unable to care for her newborn daughter. But when she joined Women for Women International, her faith in the future was restored. Thanks to the business skills she learned, Zarquona is now an entrepreneur making a tremendous difference in the lives of the women around her. She employs 120 local women, helping her neighbors become financially independent. By helping a woman like Zarquona, you can improve the lives of many others, creating a ripple affect of hope and prosperity that reaches hundreds more women in the nations we serve.
