This is Dorcus. Her life was changed recently when she was given a chance to start her own business through Love Mercy Foundation Cents for Seeds Micro-Loan initiative.
She was simply given a $30 gift which enabled her to receive a business loan to buy a 30kg bag of seeds to plant, harvest, and return. She worked her butt off all season, and sold her crop at the local market. She paid back her loan and with the income that she earned she completed a training course in tailoring to gain skills and employment.
We love hearing the stories of how these women’s children don’t need to be sponsored anymore. Their children are being fed and sent to school all because of a simple gift of a business loan given to their mother. As the mother works hard and pays back their loan and starts to make a profit, the loan is then passed on to the next woman in the community. It’s an ongoing gift that is changing the face of villages and communities in Northern Uganda.
We could go on and on, but long story short – for every elopement we book, we will be sowing into these women’s lives in a very real and practical way – $30 from every sale will be donated to this cause. Rest easy knowing that your elopement can change a strangers life, we wonder if this could change the world?
