Yvonne’s Story

“We should be able to do bigger things and save for our kids because we’ve already lived half our years.”

Yvonne from Lusaka, Zambia

Her Story:
In a community where the devastating effects of the AIDS pandemic have spared no one, Yvonne is a beacon of strength and determination. She lost hear husband, and two weeks later, lost a child.

Her grief led her to a local PCI WE group, where she found support and – ultimately – hope. “Now I am able to put a smile on my face.” Today, she is a respected group leader who is helping other women learn the skills they need to achieve economic independence.
