This is Mercy Matiyasi,a widow from Mbande cluster in Chikwawa's TA Maseya. Benefiting from both Mtukula Pakhomo and Tizidalire project (under Farms, care Malawi) she currently owns the following assets

Cattle, Goats, Pigs, Chickens, a bicycle and a vegetable garden. Her kids are also able to attend school and the wellbeing of the family has improved. Joining a VSL in her area gave her a platform to multiply the  Mtukula Pakhomo cash which she uses in meeting some needs like food, school fees, uniform and acquiring some assets. Her ambition is to sell her goats and invest the proceeds in a cattle business. Initially she lived in a grass roofed house but thanks to cash transfers that took her out of this predicament in which she  presently owns a house  roofed with iron sheets. It is still her dream though to build a new house for the family.
