Mary Makkazi is a single mother of five children. She works hard on her maize farm to provide for them and her sister, whose family she also supports. Providing for the family was a daily struggle and concern, until she met Opportunity International who supported Mary with access to loans and training. As a result of increased yield and profit, Mary has improved her house and can pay her children’s school fees.

As a mother I feel so happy and proud that I can take care of my children. I dream that through my business, I can get my children a good education that will give them a good life. Thank you Opportunity for giving me more energy and inspiration to work harder.
