RECIPIENT: Mary James – Age 48

Empowered By: D’Anna Freiberg

Mary has 10 children of which 5 lives at home. Mary had told me that her husband has been unemployed for about 3 years. A year ago, out of frustration of not being able to support his family, he left in search of employment in a town called Smell No Taste (a small town with a deep meaning!). About 4 months ago, Mary found out that her husband has a new girlfriend whom he is living with . Although he is still unemployed, the new girlfriend is supporting him. She told me, “Old Ma, when the man not want you, you can’t force him”. Only the children and me I worry about oh. I just need help with something to do for us to eat and for my children to go to school.” Mary was so excited that, although I kept calling her the wrong name, (Edith), she was totally OK with it. She was so sweet!  These are photos of Mary receiving her new supply of selling goods to now be able to successfully start her very own business to support her children.
