Happy International Women’s Day!
Today, people around the world are coming together to honor women who make it happen.
Fonkoze is proud to celebrate women like Marimene Delus, who not only transformed her home (below), but her life.
“Before CLM, I was churning water to make butter,” says Marimene, who used to borrow $1 USD to buy charcoal to sell in her community, but usually ended the day in debt.
Now, with the support of the CLM program, Marimene runs a successful business selling cleaning and beauty products. She has also raised eight goats and a pig, and plans to purchase a cow—a valuable asset in her rural community.
Thanks to her success, Marimene sends all three of her children to school, helping to change their futures—and the way she sees herself.
But her success would not be possible without the support of friends like you.
