OPPORTUNITY INTERNATIONAL: Single Motherhood

A single mother farms maize.

Mary Makkazi is a single mother with five children in Uganda. Everyday she works her maize farm so she can pay for her children to attend school. With a loan from Opportunity, Mary was able to buy better seeds and fertilizer. She also received tools and training that helped her improve her harvest. Mary now produces so much maize that she has been able to build a house for her family. She also hired someone to help her tend the land, thus creating a job in her community. Opportunity can change everything. A donation from you today can help transform another family's life, just like Mary's.
