Angola. Edna had to balance her work with her MBS course training. But it was all worth it and she is now able to manage her business using what she learned from the MBS.
Hello, I’m Edna Chitombi, and I live in Angola. I started in the commercial world 18 years ago working as a Cashier Operator but three years later I stopped working and enrolled in the Gregório Semedo University for a degree in Business Organization and Management. While I was graduating I opened a hair salon, I had other street businesses such as: selling clothes, jewelry, cement, drinks, etc. For 12 years I have been an Insurance Broker and also a Store Manager in a hypermarket in the country. I like sports and I practice a modality called Crav-Maga – Personal Defense. I have already participated in some community activities in orphanages taking food and school supplies, and helping in the cleaning in my community. This course was a challenge for me, because reconciling work and training was not an easy task. However, each Unit was encouraging me not to give up and I could discover new skills, new perspectives of interior, family and community change, and with this knowledge I can impact other people’s lives. Before the course, my street business was done in an empirical way, I had no concept that my Wheel of Quality of Life was unbalanced and the MBS has totally changed the concept I was using, it also gave me a different vision of business, and I learned the step by step process to create a business, in an uncomplicated way using the necessary tools. I must thank the brilliant initiative of Interweave Solutions in choosing my country to be part of this Project.
Angola. Simão Pedro, can use his talents to grow professionally and support his community. Read what he says about MBS: “Each lesson was a game changer in my professional career and commitment to my community”
Simão Pedro José, Angolan, 31 years old, I am a teacher by profession, and have a communicative and dominant character.. Since very early on, I have been committed to learning continuously in order to improve my life. I never had the opportunity to have a financial education that would allow me to improve my life. As a public servant, I go through many financial needs. Knowing the course, I realized that my life could change significantly. Through everything I learned in this course, I created a business plan in the academic area, where through my training I will provide training, mentoring and consulting. I have everything ready to start. Thanks to the Course and to Interweave Solutions. You have changed my life.
Ghana. My name is Maurice Divine. I am a 30 year old Advertising Copywriter based in Accra, Ghana. My experience with the program has been life changing. Before taking the course, I was very wasteful in every aspect of my life. I was constantly in debt and my business was not improving. However, since I started applying the MBS principles in my personal life and business, I have noticed a significant improvement in my life. I save regularly, prioritize my day to achieve goals set for the day, now serve in my community and so much more. I feel like I am finally in charge of my life.
Honduras. My name is Glenda Patricia Cabrera; I am a 48-year-old married woman with 2 beautiful daughters. The Lord has allowed me to have the opportunity to take care of other 4 nephews that are like my children. I have incorporated them in my business so that they start learning about running businesses. I have worked in different places and God willing; it has allowed me to learn from every home. There is no limit of age to keep learning, I hope to become a businesswoman so the day that I am gone I can leave my children with a valuable gift, not only with financial gains but also knowing how to become an entrepreneur.
My experience receiving this certificate has been very beneficial and full of blessings. From the moment I signed up I got a scholarship. I can honestly say I was very ignorant in this area of learning a business. I thought that it was a matter of saying to the customer, please buy this from me. Now I realize that it is about having a convincing process and about treating our clients with respect. Even more than that, is about treating us with respect by respecting our business. I learned that we can’t rob our business by not paying for what we consume or use. My biggest example of overcoming hardships is my mother. She has been a single mom with 11 children that never had the support of her partner or her family. But she never gave up. She kept moving forward, to the point that she has helped her 8 children become good people without the help of a man. She showed me it was not necessary to have a man by your side to keep moving forward. She has proven to be someone strong and worthy to follow. She is an 81-year-old woman now, and she teaches us every day about persevering. She wakes up at 5 am every day, she is really a force to be reckoned with. We laugh because all of our family got COVID, except for her! She would take care of us while we were sick. She is truly our hero, and that is who I would like to be, with an insatiable energy. God bless you my elderly Mother.
