When Collins, a young boy in Kenya, joined the Hope for a Family sponsorship program, his mother Roseline embraced the CFCA mothers group and took steps to transform her family’s life.
“In our group we share ideas on business ventures and we also encourage each other on personal matters. Ö Our slogan is ‘Jikaze,’ which means ‘do not give up,’” Roseline said.
Through the Hope for a Family sponsorship program, CFCA offers opportunities for families to achieve economic self-sufficiency through mothers groups and other activities.
Roseline is the secretary for her mothers group. She takes the minutes at each meeting and is also the signatory.
Through the mothers group, Roseline has been able to start her own business, something that would not have been possible without the loan she received from her mothers group last September.
Roseline used the loan to purchase 23 tins of millet, which is a type of grain grown widely around the world for cereal. Roseline re-sells the millet to earn additional income for her family.
She has since opened a bank account to save the profits she earns because she is planning to expand her business in the future.
“I would like to encourage my fellow mothers to work hard and make use of the help that CFCA gives them through the CFCA support groups,” Roseline said. “My wish is to see my children succeed in life and help the needy in society.”
