An integral part of the 31 Bits model is to provide education and encouragement for beneficiaries to start their own businesses. By providing financial trainings, business classes, and one-on-one consultations with our Business Manager, each of the women are challenged to work with the resources they have to build a business. And Atim Irene is going for it!
Mother to four and the sole provider in her household, Irene is a women of great determination and grit. When she decided she wanted to sell porridge on a large scale, she knew she did not have the capitol. Starting small, she decided to begin with her family at 31 Bits!
Every morning Irene wakes up at 5:30 to begin making porridge for her coworkers and by 9, she is at work with a jerry can of hot porridge and a basket of cups in hand.
The women LOVE her porridge, and as they enjoy a warm breakfast, Irene’s business capitol is growing. Cheers!
