From Our Microfinance Partner: Opportunity International

Photo of the week: Sanju

Sanju understands better than most the importance of education. Raised in a poor family, she was married at just 10 years old. With four young children and a husband working at a brick factory, Sanju was desperate to increase her family’s income. She used a series of small loans from one of Opportunity International Australia’s partners in India, C-DOT, to purchase and raise cattle. As a result, all four of her children are now attending school. Since joining C-DOT, Sanju has learned to sign her name. It’s clear that her own lack of education will not stop her determination to become a successful entrepreneur and give her children a brighter future.
