Tell us about yourself
I am 50 years old and a mother of 2 children. I run a cereal business. I purchase produce from farmers and sell in Luanda market. I love spending time with my group mates since we share a lot and encourage one another.
What are you most proud of?
I am proud of my group and The Pangea Network. Through my group, I had the opportunity to meet Pangea who I have learned a lot from. Their teachings and financial assistance enabled me expand my cereals business from selling one sack to six sacks. I sell groundnuts, maize, millet, beans, green-grams, chicken feed, etc. This has helped me a great deal. I have become self-reliant and now pay school fees for my 2 children in high school.
What is the most important lesson you’ve learned with The Pangea Network?
My greatest lesson from The Pangea Network was bookkeeping. This has proved useful to me since I track my income and expenditures, which is an important part of my growing business. I am able to know how much to expect from my business which has made planning easier for me.
