MY PERSONAL STORY

I was born in the DRC, more precisely in Lulingu, in a mining village associated with the Kivu Mining Company [Société Minière du Kivu – SOMINKI]. My father worked for this company. I am the firstborn in my family; I am married and the mother of ten – four girls and six boys. My eldest daughter is married and she is a doctor with a degree in business management; my other children are students. My husband is a mechanical engineer, and I am the coordinator for a local association called the Farmers Association of Vulnerable Women (Association Paysanne des Femmes Vulnérables – APFV). I fight against sexual violence perpetrated against vulnerable women and I fight for women’s rights. In addition, I design traditional handbags and I farm and keep livestock in remote villages. These are the reasons I’ve connected to the World Pulse network. I would like to further the development and growth of these various projects..
