A Thank You from Diando

Bill Abrams: While I was in Mali last month, I had the pleasure of meeting a Trickle Up participant by the name of Diando Koulibaly. Diando talked to me about her successful new business selling fish, how she can now overcome the hungry season and about her positive outlook on life. I can think of no better way of conveying thanks to you than to let you hear it from Diando herself.

Interviewer translating: In the past we weren’t involved in any business. Trickle Up came to train us and gave us grants to start our businesses. Today, I am very happy with my profitable business. Before, we had less than 2 meals a day. Now we have more than 4! In the past our children didn’t have clothes and shoes. Now we can get them everything they need. Our children used to go to school without pocket money to buy food. Now we can give them some. Today we are really happy. We thank you for all your support.
