Maness Nkhoma was a victim of polygamie. When her husband stopped taking care of her and her children, she decided to go back to her parents. Like many other women in her situation, she was unable to support her children.

The coming of VSL (Village Savings And Loans) groups from the Ungwerus’s project OVC (Orphans and Vulnerable Children) sponsored by OXFAM changed her life.

She joined the VSL group under Tilindimwayi CBO (Community Base Center) and received a loan from the group. She managed to start a small scale business. With the profits and the loan she bought 30 iron sheets for her house and provided for her family. She was also able to buy fertiliser without waiting for the fertiliser subsidy programme.

With the support of OXFAM the Ungweru organization changed her life and that of her children. A nice ending story.
