Life Improvement

I came across Achao Kevin and narrated that in the past years,she had too much deficulties in the cost of living because she had no job.Her husband was working to produce waragi in the factories of makenke but by accidentaly the drum busted and he was affected too much because he sustained several wounds on his body which forced him to abandon the work for sometime yet he is the one who was looking for the home needs. Achao congratulated paul who came up to uplift the lives of women by availing them with start up capital which they had to pay pack after sometime but with no profit.She said she channeled the capital in farming and rearing and now, they are able to acquire their needs. She rearly appriciated paul for having a Godly heart.
