Reporter: ALNA IS A

WIFE AND MOTHER AND SOLE

SUPPORTER OF HER FAMILY.

HER HUSBAND WORKED AS A

FIELD WORKER UNTIL HE WAS

ACCIDENTALLY CAUGHT ON

FIRE.

WHEN HE WAS MAKING TEA,

SOMEONE CARELESSLY FLEW

GASOLINE ON THE FIRE AND IT

BLEW UP.

MY HUSBAND WAS BURNED ALL

OVER HIS BODY.

Reporter: HER HUSBAND

WAS DISABLED AND COULDN'T

WORK.

SHE HAD TO FIND A WAY TO

MAKE MONEY.

SO SHE BOUGHT AN OLD CHURN.

EVERY DAY HER NEIGHBORS

BRING HER FRESH MELT AND SHE

SEPARATES IT INTO BUTTER ON

ONE SIDE AND MILK ON THE

OTHER.

BUT THE MACHINE IS VERY OLD

AND BROKE, SO SHE ONLY EARNS

ABOUT $1.50 A WEEK.

I THOUGHT IT WOULD HELP

ME FEED MY CHILDREN BECAUSE

EVERY DAY THEY GO TO SCHOOL

HUNGRY.

MY NEIGHBORS WILL SOMETIMES

GIVE MY BREAD CRUMBS, MIXED

WITH BITS OF CHEESE, TO FEED

MY CHILDREN.

Reporter: THE LAST TIME

THE MACHINE BROKE, IT COST

THE EQUIVALENT OF THREE

MONTH'S WAGES TO GET IT

FIXED.

SHE PAID IT OFF.

SO WE'RE GOING TO PAY OFF

HER DEBT AND GIVE HER A

CLEAN SLATE.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE ON OUR WAY

TO THE MARKET TO GET HER A

MACHINE THAT WOULDN'T

BREAK.

WHEN ALNA AND HER HUSBAND

SAW US COMING BACK, THEY

WERE EXCITED TO SEE WHAT WE

BROUGHT WITH US.

HERE IS YOUR BRAND NEW

MACHINE.

Reporter: ANYONE BRIA

BEFORE WE FINISHED SETTING

UP THE NEW MACHINE,

NEIGHBORS WERE ALREADY

COMING OVER WITH FRESH MILK

TO SEPARATE.

WHEN MY NEIGHBORS FOUND

OUT I GOT THE MACHINE, THEY

WERE COMING FROM HERE AND

THERE.

SO WORK AND COSTUMERS -- AND

I'M SO HAPPY.

Reporter: WE'RE HELPING

HER BUILD HER BUSINESS, AND

NOW SHE HAS A MACHINE THAT

IS FASTER AND MORE

EFFICIENT, SO SHE'LL BE

MAKING MORE MONEY THAN SHE

EVER HAS BEFORE.

WITH THE ADDED INCOME AND NO

DEBT, HER FAMILY WON'T GO

HUNGRY ANYMORE.

GOD BE WITH YOU AND BLESS

YOU, AND KEEP YOU BENEATH

THE SHAD GO O SHADOW OF HIS

WINGS.

AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

THE MACHINE.
