SEGON AND HER BROTHER

WERE VERY YOUNG WHEN THEIR

DAD LEFT HOME AND NEVER

RETURNED.

IT WAS SAD TO GROW UP

WITHOUT A FATHER.

I KEPT WONDERING WHY HE LEFT

US.

Reporter: AFTER THEIR

DAD LEFT, SEGON'S MOM

COULDN'T FIND WORK AND OFTENúú

BEGGED FOR FOOD FOR HER

CHILDREN.

SOMETIMES THAT TOOK HER FAR

FROM HOME.

ONE DAY WE WERE

STARVING.

I COULDN'T WAIT FOR MOM ANY

LONGER.

SO WE WENT TO MY FRIEND'S

HOUSE TO ASK FOR SOMETHING

TO EAT.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY,

SHE BEGGED A NEIGHBOR TO

HIRE HER HAS A WEAVER.

FOR 12 HOURS WORK, SHE MADE

A DOLLAR.

THEN ONE DAY SOMEONE FROM

CBN SAW HER CREATIONS AND

OFFERED TO HIP HER SET UP

HER OWN BUSINESS.

WE GAVE HER A NEW LOOM AND

THREADS TO MAKE ITEMS.

AND WE POURED A CEMENT FLOOR

TO KEEP HER LOOMS SAFE AND

DRY.

HER INCOME HAS INCREASED 10

TIMES, AND WITH HER PROFITS,

SHE ALSO STARTED A FISH

FARM.

I'M GLAD TO SEE MY MOM

SMILING WHILE WEAVING WITH

HER OWN WOMB.

I'M GRATEFUL FOR THE LOVE

AND CARE THAT YOU HAVE

SHOWED MY FAMILY.

THE NEW LOOM WAS THE START

OF A NEW LIFE FOR US.

NOTHING COMPARES TO THE JOY

IN MY HEART.

I WANT TO HUG THE PEOPLE

FROM CBN.
