Her Entrepreneurship Journey (Folake Posu)

We still took care of her when she was confirmed pregnant but ours was just medical care and that wasn’t enough to sustain her and her child. Men in Sogunro Community are not your classic example of providers most of their women are left to fend for themselves. She was one of the first women who motivated us to launch the women empowerment wing to assist their effort. So we loaned her N5000 which she was supposed to refund after 6 weeks. She came in with a guarantor someone who could pay back if she doesn’t keep her own end of the bargain.

He is also suppose to monitor what she does with the money, ensure she sells and makes profit enough to refund the money as at when due. Lo and behold she kept her words, she refunded the money and made 5,000 naira profit selling Brazilian wool and attachment for making her. From the profit she was able to afford her daily meal and feed her Child something she could not do before. She was able to do her pregnancy scan and making a little deposit for the hospital delivery of her unborn baby because she is now very close to term. She is our first attempt at this we are hoping we can help alot more. So if you will like to join us on this journey of empowering women your donation of 5,000 Naira can help a pregnant woman in Sogunro go into petty trading.
