"My name is B. F. I have four children, two of whom are girls. You ask me what has changed in my life because of the project?

I don't know how to talk because I am overwhelmed (run away from my husband, humiliated, children out of school, insufficient food budget, isolation). I understood that my life was not a fatality and that I could get out of it and save my children. I began to have confidence and also to go out and manage. It is not enough to have a lot of money but if you know how to manage the little you earn it frees you from your daily anguish and that is my case.

My eyes are open now in regards to my life and the management of my children. I may not have been up to par as a mother and wife, but thanks to Act, I have taken my life back. I used to be ashamed but now I walk with my head held high with other women."
