Meet Naomi, a single mother of two in a small remote village in Ghana.
At age 5, she got an infection which led to her severe disability. She is the sole provider for herself and her 2 children. Because of her disability, banks wouldn’t lend her money to start a business.
About a year ago, her son went to Mentors International and told them her story. Since she physically couldn’t come to Mentor’s office, they came to her to give her business training.
Mentors gave her a first loan of 500 GHS ($125) to start her own “convenience store” with 6 months to repay. Naomi was trained by Mentors and connected with better suppliers which reduced her costs. Naomi was able to repay her first loan in only 3 months.
Naomi took out her second loan from Mentors for 1500 GHS ($375), bought a fridge, improved her customer service, and again repaid her loan in only 3 months.
I’m honored to be able to support the partnership between Mentor’s International and doTERRA’s Healing Hands. A small gift on our part unlocks the chains of poverty for Naomi and thousands like her.
