Autres Difficultés rencontrés jour au jour

Ici à l'Est de la République Démocratique du Congo, il y a des femmes qui manquent quoi faire pour les étude des enfant, elles prennent de l'argent chez son voisin ou les bradeurs avec quelque pourcentage par mois, or si par exemple tu a pris 200$, tu dois donner 30$ de % à chaque mois. Si tu a fait l'activité de commerce et que tu n'a pas eu la bénéfice ou ça n'a pas marché, quand la date arrive tu sera obligé de remettre 600$ aulieu de 200$ que tu a empreté.
Qui va nous sortir de cette violence? Les femmes sont victimes de tout, on les condamnent sans être jugées, d'autres personnes qui sont touchées par le problème veulent s'impliquer à leurs place mais il n'ont pas ce pouvoir là.
Si aumoins les autorités se mettaient ensemble à ce problème pour chercher solution "tout ira bien "

Tenez-nous la main dans la main!

Merci mes amies.

Other Difficulties Encountered Day to Day

Here in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, there are women who lack what they need to study child, they take money from their neighbor or price cutters with some percentage per month, if for example you have taken $200, you must give $30% each month. If you made ​​the trade activity and you do not have the income or you do not work when the date arrives, you will be required to give $ 600 $ 200 to the person you borrow them from.

Who will get us out of this violence? Women are victims of all, we condemn without trial, others who are affected by the problem want to get involved in their place, but it does not have that power there.

At least if the authorities got together to find a solution for this problem "everything would be alright"

Keep us hand in hand!

Thank you my friends.

Education is important

Dear Mumbalima,

This is what we call the sacrifice of moms and women for their children futures and well being.
I salute your courage to write online and use the power of technology to tell your story as I salute your daily sacrifice to educate your children.

We are supporting your cause and we should work together on finding the solution for it.

Warm regards my sister,
