Meet El Sas. For most couples in relationships, their biggest supporters are their partners, but this wasn’t the case for El Sas. With her husband working overseas, El Sas couldn’t afford not to work while waiting for the money to come through, so she started to look for a way to make money herself.
Through skills training, she was provided with an opportunity to learn more about being a farmer and running her own farm. After her first successful crop, even in the face of drought, her husband’s mind began to change.
El Sas now employs many locals at her farm and has trained 10 other families in how to run farms too! El Sas’ resilience and belief in herself has had a lasting impact on her and the community.
