31 Bits Mamas :: Meet Apio Jackie

As you know, your purchase at 31 Bits helps support moms’ on the other side of the world, both as mother’s providing for their families, as well as aspiring entrepreneurs. This mother’s day season we asked a few of our favorite “mama birds” about the ups and downs of motherhood…

Meet Apio Jackie and Laket Patricia!

What is nice about bringing your child to work?

I don’t have to worry about Laket when I bring her to work. She’s very happy to stay with me.

Describe your child:

Laket has a very strong personality. She holds her ground, she’s full of passion, and she is not afraid of anyone. When she makes a decision, she won’t change it. She is very stubborn!

What is something special about your child?

I think she is special. She is very happy and she loves to tell stories. Laket can also be very sweet and helpful.

How does 31 Bits help you during motherhood?

During my pregnancy, 31 Bits made me feel strong. I earned a salary and received trainings, and was able to better prepare for motherhood.

How has being a mother improved your life?

I know I am a stronger person since becoming a mother. I have gotten along better with my husband too. We are a closer family thanks to Laket.

What is your greatest wish for your child?

I hope Laket receives a great education and has good health the rest of her life.

What is your child’s favorite word, game, or song?

Laket loves to pretend she is cooking at home. She will fetch small bits of water and take flour and salt from the kitchen to create her own pretend food. She could pretend she is cooking all day. She also loves to call me “Ma.”

What would you like to say to moms in America?

I want American mothers to remember to put their children in their prayers.
