Leoncie is one of the recipients of a cow. Not only has the cow already given her two calves, she also benefits by selling the milk and using the manure to plant her banana trees. Leoncie was able to rehabilitate her home and is now able to pay for her two children’s medical insurance, school fees, and is saving money to send her children to secondary school.  Leoncie says that before her cows, she was just “a poor farmer” but now is comfortable supporting herself and children. Leoncie’s husband had left her several years ago but she explains that because of the confidence she gained by being financially independent, her husband has come back and contributes to the family as well.  Leoncie hopes to expand the number of cows she has in the future.

Vanessa is a beneficiary of the school feeding program. She is the youngest in a family of five but has lived with her grandmother since her father’s passing. Before the program, Vanessa would go home during the lunch hour but would come back to school without eating anything. The program has helped her a lot not only physically, but she has also seen an improvement in her test scores and is now second in her class. Vanessa hopes to go to the university in the future to study business and has started a college savings account.

Claudine was chosen to have a new house constructed because of her husband passing away in 2010 and being left on her own with her three kids. In her old house, her and her kids often had to migrate within the house when it was raining because it had a dilapidated roof that leaked. Claudine was part of the process to design and build her house and said that when her and her kids first stepped into the new house, it was “the most joyful time, we danced and sang!” She hopes to continue raising her kids and save enough money to pay for their school fees
