Circle Kubatana Tose: A Lifeline for Chipo and Her Family

My name is Chipo, I'm 35 years old and I live with my family. I do vegetable gardening and chicken poultry to earn a living, these projects are my source of livelihood. I joined the Circle Kubatana Tose where we engage in different projects to generate income which helps us avoid money problems in our homes, however the most important aspect of the group is the psycho social support we give each other through checking up on how each member of the group is doing before engaging in any activities and this is where people feel safe to share their problems and experiences with the group and we help each other through tough times.

Things used to be difficult for me and my family financially before I joined the Circle Kubatana Tose support group. This group has empowered us with skills that we can use to generate money. We all put some money together for projects like chicken poultry. We take care of the project together, and then we share the money we get when we sell the eggs. It's a team effort.

We are like family! Everyone contributes a fair amount, and there is a committee in charge to keep things organized. Being in this group makes me feel strong and independent. Now I can plan without having to ask my husband for everything. We don't worry so much about money anymore, and that feels good. It is amazing that now we can fight money problems and build a stronger community together. We work hard, share what we know, and celebrate each other's wins and I'm happy to be a part of the Friendship Bench Circle Kubatana Tose support group.
