About How SHI Impacts Communities
  • I feel more secure and I am infinitely grateful to Self-Help International for opening doors to me when I needed it most. I have not only been supported with financing but also with training, seed donations and technical advice from the SHI staff. Now my economic situation is better than in the past, and every day I earn a good income because I sell a variety of products and have a good demand for them.
