English translation by PulseWire member AnnieTheriault

Here, in Bukavu, because of unemployment, a mother took out a 500$ loan. She sold belts but, unfortunately, suffered a loss. Consequently, the person who had loaned her the money took possession of her home. The mother and her family had nowhere to go, and her husband had abandoned her. Friends, this is very serious!

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.
