For their Precious Little Ones

Until a vulnerable woman is helped to address her poverty, she will still be attracted to the prospect of migration out of her home village. This is a high risk change for her and leaves her vulnerable to trafficking.

My Business My Freedom Program aims to help targeted women address their poverty and support their families more sustainably through offering small business solutions. Below are stories of two determined and hardworking women who received their loans in 2020.

Mina received her first loan in the latter half of 2020 and used it to start a small goat-raising business. She uses the income from this business to provide for her and her little daughter as well as save up for when her daughter is ready to start school.

Meanwhile, Raju started her small convenience store from the loan she received from My Business My Freedom. She has been able to earn a more steady income, while slowly repaying her microloan.

Though these two moms’ business ventures are entirely different from each other, both of them share a common goal, that is, to save up and provide a better future for their precious little ones.

Along with the continued support of women’s groups, we believe that these small businesses are what will permanently remove these women and their daughters from the lures of trafficking.
