As a widow and a very poor mother, Frida didn’t know how to provide for her three kids. She turned to alcohol and begging on the streets to survive. Frida confesses that her children often went hungry and were traumatized by her lifestyle. Through a local church, Frida learned about Five Talents and decided to join a small group of women. “I became transformed”, she says, “in learning about prayer, how to plan a business and the qualities of a godly woman and mother.”
Finally, good luck broker her way, Frida was offered a loan from her group and began to buy and sell beans, peanuts, avocadoes, and tomatoes. Over time she stopped drinking and made a decision to be a better mother and joined a church. Today, Frida is a community leader and assists other women in need. Her business has grown, and she has been able to rent an apartment. Her children are now in school, and Frida takes pride in being a good mom!
Frida’s story is one of the thousands of stories of people who have been impacted by poverty. As we live through this COVID-19, and you pass a homeless person, try to find it yourself to dig into your pockets and help the needy. I know I’m as guilty as anyone else of walking by the homeless without sharing some of my gifts that have been blessed on me, this is one thing I’m trying to change.
