Judith started selling peanut butter at a roadside stand after she received her first loan in November 2016. Within a few weeks she had to move her stand as she did not have a license to sell on the road. She then started a home delivery business as her customers liked her product. She faced increased competition as more women in her area started making and selling peanut butter.
Programs for the Community
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy new year! We have a wonderful piece of news to kick start 2018: in Florida, a group of scientists have demonstrated a "functional cure" for HIV. In a novel approach, a new compound effectively suppresses production of the HIV virus.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy December! Today we would like you to meet our partner organization, in India.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy October! In Zambia, this is the start of the summer season. Orphans and vulnerable children from our community of Matero, in Zambia, enjoy playing and learning with us on Saturday mornings.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy September! You will be happy to know that we completed a unique workshop in our community in July. The workshop provided training on how to make mosquito-blocking window screens out of recycled waste plastic.
A big thank you! The Power of Love team and families in our micro loans program truly appreciate your support and generosity. Your generosity and caring for Zambian women and their families is creating a legacy of empowered women, and a stronger more self-reliant community in Zambia.
Children enrolled in our "Safe Park" program are battling the devastating effects of poverty, abuse, HIV, and AIDS. Many have lost parents and family, experience deprivation and abuse, have been stigmatized, and suffer overwhelming grief.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy June! We are happy to report that we are winning the fight against malaria. Globally, there has been a 21% decrease in malaria incidence, and a 29% decrease in malaria mortality over the last five years. This has been possible largely due to better access and use of long lasting insecticide treated nets in sub-Saharan Africa.
