Monthly Giving - Seeds of Opportunity
The Seeds of Opportunity family is a special group of people committed to changing the lives of families living in poverty through monthly giving.
For $35 a month, you can plant Seeds of Opportunity in the lives of 6 families each year. Just $1.17 a day is enough to provide mothers like Menci with small loans to start their own small businesses, giving them the income they need to provide for their children and begin to leave poverty behind.
Menci's Story – how the seeds you plant will grow
Several years ago, Menci's family couldn't afford to eat proper meals each day. As a mother, she dreamed of sending her children Shania, Endra and Decky to school. But living in poverty, she couldn’t. Using seeds to grow a small farm, Menci has been able to make this dream a reality.
My name is Menci and I am 35 years old. I am married to Kefas and we have been blessed with three children, Shania (8), Endra (3) and Decky (1). Before we received a small loan, we were very poor.
With a small loan, we were able to buy seedlings and fertiliser. I bought spinach, kangkung (a leafy vegetable) and cabbage. We are now able to eat regular meals each day and I’m able to save part of my money. But most importantly, we can now pay for our children to go to school. With an education, they will have a better life!
