Our quilters attend money management training

All our quilters attended a two-day training about budgeting, savings, and business planning facilitated by our Program Director, Norah. All of the material was a new concept for them. Role play, singing and dancing all helped communicate the importance of planning how to spend their money. At the end, every woman wrote a simple business plan for how she was going to invest the money she received from their income-generating support group. Most planned to buy livestock, like chickens or goats. In a few months, one of our Community Based Organization Board members will visit all the women to see how they are doing and make sure the money was invested as planned.
