My name is Kate Adzika. l am 30 years and live at Aflao, Ghana which is near the border of Togo and Ghana. An estimated 81.2 percent of Togo’s rural population live below the poverty line, making it one of the “world’s poorest countries.”
But last year, in 2021, I participated in an Amevivina Care women’s microbusiness training led by Mama Elizabeth. I learnt a lot from the training program about how to start a micro-business. I also learned how to make soap and other hand-sanitizer products. We received a soap-making machine that enables me to manufacture soap right here in our community and I was able to go into soap production.
I now make soaps in boxes and sell to retailers. I make about 20 Ghanian Cedis for each box which equals about $3 US Dollar.
My aspiration is to increase production to help support my family and provide school fees for my children.
My heart is grateful to God for this opportunity to work hard and make something that is helpful for our community. And to help my family.
