Before PEP, many in the village were expectant that the Pastor could be lent upon for help, many didn’t know how to do things for themselves, and her husband was not able to provide for the family.
Margarent looked at the resources that she had – realized that she had a tree from which she was able to produce oil, and then grew cassava for flour, and therefore produces bread.
Where they lived didn’t have good sanitation, so the kids got sick, and any money she was making was going on medication, and they were back to no money. She undertook a range of lessons at PEP, and took those back to her husband to discuss with him, and they started to find new ways to a small business, and self-sufficiency.
Margaret took us to visit her bakery, and gave us some bread to try… quite hard, looks quite like cornmeal, but tastes OK.
