Her brother built her a mud house, but she had practically nothing. With seven children to look after, and no education, she could not work. With no husband, her future looked grim indeed.
We installed a solar electrical system for her house, upon request from AEE.
And some of us put together some money for her and her children.
Half a year later, we came back and found the electrical system working. And she was beaming.
With the money we gave her, she bought a young cow, 2 goats, and 2 chicken. Her cow eyed us with curiosity. The cow is already producing a lot of urine and dung - useful as fertilizer. Soon the cow will start to produce milk for her children.
The mud house is still a mud house. She still has seven children to feed, and no husband. But she is evidently much more hopeful. It is amazing how much a cow can do for you.
We are also very happy for her.
