At age 19, Fibi is one of the youngest beneficiaries of 31 Bits, but you wouldn’t know it by her confidence and character. She has a joyful spirit and is always quick to greet the other ladies. Seeing her now, it is hard to imagine the life she used to live.
After her mother died, Fibi was forced to drop out of school at an early age in order to earn enough money to take care of her sister’s two children. She cleaned hotels to put the children through school and did not have much money or time left for herself. During this time she also began raising her own child by herself after the father left. Her life was difficult and she felt very alone.
Since joining 31 Bits however, “everything is good,” she tells me. She is happy because she is earning enough money to support herself as well as three dependent children. She can now sustain her 10-month-old daughter and continues to pay the school fees of her 13-year-old niece and 10-year-old nephew as well as other expenses. 31 Bits has also enabled her to purchase the medication necessary for treating her HIV.
Fibi plans to undergo business training and eventually open her own produce business. She loves spending time with children and teaching them the ways of the Lord.
