Confident Mom

Description

Ariunaa, an entrepreneur in Mongolia, treasures her sewing machine above everything else.

Ariunaa, a 44-year-old mother of four, found it hard to provide for her family living in rural Mongolia. She once lived as a herder, but as the cost of her children’s education soared, she sold her livestock and moved into town. 

She had few vocational skills and couldn’t get a job, but she knew how to sew. She began making clothes at home and selling her creations to friends and neighbors. Her reputation grew. 

World Vision took notice of Ariunaa and gave her the prized electric sewing machine. 

“The sewing machine made everything easier,” she says. “It’s very fast, so I can make a lot more clothes. It took me a week to make one deel (traditional dress) before, but now I can finish one in two days.”

World Vision also helped her open a small shop, so she has even more customers. Her revenue has increased, and she can provide for her family.

“Now I have a stable source of income, so I can afford my kids’ educational needs,” she says. 

The lack of economic opportunities is just one issue facing people in Mongolia. Please pray with us for the people of Mongolia.
