Empowering women in rural areas, helping them with literacy skills and business skills, and teaching them how to diversify their sources of income, as well as increasing self-esteem and enabling them to stand up and talk in public, these are some of the life-enriching skills women learn from “Ifendu” which has truly become their Light of Life.
“Before I joined Ifendu life was hard for me. I would go into the bush to gather firewood and sell for little money. But after Ifendu taught us how to do business I started going to interior villages to buy cheaper and take to the town to sell at a profit. I have received a loan from Ifendu three times and have used it to achieve a lot. My new ability to read and write and also the ability to separate capital from sales I will never forget.”
“I used to cook with firewood but with the profit I made I was able to buy a kerosine stove. With my profit from the third loan I was able to buy a big drum for harvesting and storing rain water. I really appreciate all that Ifendu is doing for us.”
“Ifendu is a beautiful organisation and I thank Sister Rose for what she has done for us. I also appreciate her staff because one tree cannot make a forest! May God bless Ifendu.”
