Pareli* left home when her husband got a second wife and rented a house near a busy bus station. One particular day, the 3 Angels Nepal team were distributing some anti-human trafficking awareness materials when they noticed a woman whose activity seemed suspicious.

CAPTIVATING FOSTER FAMILY LOANS PROGRAMS

Megan's plan to adopt an orphan

Behind Megan's big smile is many years of disappointment. For 9 years Megan has not been able to conceive and give her husband a child. You see, Kenyan's are all about family and when Megan was unable to give her husband a family, she was chased out of the house. Megan has been living alone and trying to establish a small store, selling fruit and some grocery items. She visits an orphanage once a month and loves spending time with the children. She tells the orphanage that she wishes she could adopt an orphan.


Megan recently joined the Captivating Foster Family Loan's Program where she received training on small business management and her very first loan through our partner ACDF. Megan is working hard to grow her small business, repay her loan and become financially strong. One orphan child will soon be part of a FOREVER FAMILY! Keep going Megan, you are one amazing lady!


Thank you to everyone who is has given to this project. Your gift is continuing to give orphans a future.
