Thank You for Your Gift of a Small Business Start-Up
In an impoverished urban community in northern Uganda, the average household income is $25 per month, which is not nearly enough money to support a family. The local Compassion center staff saw the need for improved economic stability in their community. By partnering with generous friends like you, the center was able to provide small business creation and management training to 35 women. The women support each other, both socially and financially, as they run their small businesses. Their businesses range from selling fruits and vegetables to repairing shoes and owning restaurants. Each month they are required to save 10 percent of their earnings for future growth and expansion. The exciting news is that 70 percent of the women are already making a profit, saving each month and improving the economic situation for their families! And the best part is, stories like this are happening all around the globe because of the generosity of people like you. Thank you!
Because of Your Generosity
