Haiti. My name is Sylfanie Alexis. I am a young Haitian student living in Haiti. In order to meet my academic needs, I decided to start a small service company to provide online registration for applicants wishing to enter the University and help them prepare for the entrance exams for the Faculties of the country.
My business allowed me to make some money, but I could never save money because I didn’t have control over my business. Then I met a friend who told me about the course and got me interested in participating. Since then I have been able to understand how important my business is and I have been able to save money. Furthermore, I am even able to project my business and am thinking of opening another product business in less than a year. My experience with this program has been fascinating and life changing and I am coming to understand that our autonomy depends on our Home, Business and Community.
South Africa. I’m C. Stino Dassi from Cameroon living in Cape Town, South Africa. When I registered for the program I didn’t know what it would be like until I started the course.
It was so relevant that the impact was imminent as it helped me start my business right away which made it so busy to set it up and run that I took a bit more time to finish the course. I implemented and still do all the 6 elements given and I should say that within a short period of time I have done something incredible with this Course.
Brazil. My name is Rosirene Félix, I am 30 years old and I live in Pires do Rio, Goiás, Brazil. I have always loved dance, ever since I was a little girl. When I was 8 I learned classical ballet for a few months, and from my adolescence to adulthood I have always been involved with dance.
I participated in two dance groups in my city, and we performed in our town and in neighboring towns. But our group was dissolved due to the extra responsibilities that came, and I could no longer dedicate myself to dance. Although I love dance, I had never thought about working with dance, but when this course was introduced to me through a friend, it opened my vision of being able to start working with what I love. This course opened new possibilities in my life, brought me new knowledge that I loved to learn, and today after finishing it I feel capable. Able to improve my talents, follow my dreams and become a successful person. The feeling I have is of gratitude for having had the opportunity to do this course, and gratitude also for everyone that helped me in any way to do it. I am sure that by putting everything I have learned into practice I will have good results, be self-reliant, and be able to be successful. Thank you very much!
DRCongo. My name is Ntumba Ntumba Franck. I am a man whose life has not really been happy. I come from a poor family. My father died when I was almost 5 years old and after his death paying school fees was difficult. Apart from God, the other person I relied on was my mother who fought for her only son to study despite extreme poverty.
In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that I have embraced, I learned to create a business and maintain good relations with others, enabling me to have my baccalaureate and finish my 5 years at university. I have always succeeded with divine help each time, but working with interest on loans does not allow me to move forward without worries and this is a big blockage because I don’t have my own capital. Nevertheless, with the little that I earned sometimes, I managed to solve some problems of my family. This course inspired me to see and do things differently, to use other methods to be more successful. There are some things that I sometimes thought I was doing well, yet I was just sinking into the pit. I learned not to retreat but rather move forward despite the obstacles. I have more than 3 banking partners who have entrusted me with some of their services that I have started doing with them in a win-win partnership. I still dream of becoming a large service and production company…
South Africa. My name is Tsholo and I am 35 year old. Last year I lost my job. I didn’t have a plan for what I could do to have an income. I then realized I can bake so I started with small orders but I was not able to see a profit. When I was introduced to this course I wanted to learn more about how to run a successful business.
So I registered only to find out that I had done so much in the wrong way. I started to work on myself and my family and see the need to help others . This course helped me to see my small business with different eyes and made me want to work hard to grow it. It will be a great addition to my curriculum vitae.
Colombia. Jennsy Dyana Piraza Puentes: It was a spectacular experience where we learned very important topics, within a business, both in personal and work life; thus we do not neglect our quality of life plan, and we take it into account for our future.
It is very important not to waste or badly spend our time and to do productive things that strengthen us every day more to achieve our goals. It is not so much to obtain a certificate as to have the knowledge and put it into practice so that other people are inspired to want to learn and leave behind those fears and insecurities and be able to guide them. It would be very successful helping other people so that they are motivated and can fulfill their achievements or projects.
Portugal. My name is Anita Filipe, an Angolan citizen, and I decided to take the MBS course because my mother, who had already taken it, encouraged me to take it. In the beginning I knew little about it, but during the course I learned new things and I gave more attention to the training. With this training I intend to improve the way I do my business, the way I manage my money, and to donate myself in community services, something I had never done before.
I have always been encouraged to do something, no matter it was, like helping my mother with the salon, taking care of the employees’ schedules, organizing and cleaning the salon. Also helping her with the door sales, or customizing clothes for us to wear. At this time I live in Portugal, and with the pandemic of COVID-19, difficulties started to appear. My sister and I needed to start a business to help with expenses and so we came up with the idea of making hamburgers, then cakes in a pot, and it was paying off, because people didn’t leave home with everything closed. Along the way my sister gave us the idea of making birthday cakes to sell and this also became part of the business.
South Africa. My name is Isaac Ribane from Johannesburg. I am the founder of Leejoy Store. I am an individual with self-reliance. l have a passion for teaching diverse youth. I am eager to learn new things.
I hold a diploma in end-user computing from Richfield Business Institute, cosmetology from Beauty Palace, and hairdressing from Mark School of Hair and Beauty and advanced hairdressing from Softsheen Carson. I have worked as a health coach, master distributor, sales consultant, currency trader, stock trader, long term investor and as an introducing broker. I am also registered as a professional officer. After all of this, I asked myself why I have not progressed financially and I found out that it is because I didn’t know how to build a system that can generate sustainable income and transform life into a brighter future.
All along, I wanted to pursue my dream of being one who had the financial resources to be an educator and make teaching and learning a priority. Throughout my journey, I met a lot of people struggling to pursue their dreams and others operating their businesses in an unsuccessful way including myself, and I didn’t know where I could get help because advanced business institutions cost more than I can afford. Long story short, I met Interweave on Facebook. It was like a dream come true but at the same time, unbelievable to me because I thought it was not legit, but I didn’t take it for granted. I registered and went through it. My mentor, Mr. Cade Curtis started to contact me and sent me a link for zoom training. I would like to thank the founder of Interweave Solutions and groups for introducing this platform to the community. You provided the necessities of my life, home, and how to operate any business in a skilled way. I learned how to analyze and solve problems through Interweave. It was by God’s grace that I came across it. I can now use the knowledge I obtained to improve myself and my family and to help other people or start-up entrepreneurs and the next generation to move from poverty to prosperity through self-reliance groups by transforming the way the world fights poverty. Through these groups, millions of people will achieve higher income, better opportunities, better homes, and improved communities. The power of groups and our values will earn us mutual respect. Sharing ideas, skills, knowledge, and success stories will help in motivation and developing successful leadership. Once again, I say thank you to Interweave for holding my hand and working with me step by step showing me how to move the mountain that was blocking me from achieving my goals.
Brazil. It was a very significant experience because the course provided me with a great learning in a clear, simple and informative way. There was a great transformation in several areas of my life, and I recommend this wonderful course.
I am Ricardo Ranniere Madureira, a professional in human development, responsible for the “Relacionamento Abusivo Jamais” program, and I help people to rescue their self-love and self-esteem, as well as find fulfillment in the emotional, physical, professional, and spiritual areas. I spent a long period studying and preparing myself to be a Psychotherapist, and before my graduation, I did several jobs with low income and no stability. I spent five years managing a department in a large shopping mall, but with the pandemic I lost my contract and the situation became very complicated. I had to restructure myself, and with the support of the Interweave Solutions course I created R&R PSYCHOTHERAPY and now I have achieved great success in Brazil and abroad.
Angola. My name is Rosa Bumba Ngola Cadiege, I am married, a mother of four, an entrepreneur, mentor, and community leader of the Social Project “Mulheres com Mentalidade do Reino”, a religious organization where my husband is the leader. I have always wanted to be an entrepreneur, create my own business, be a successful businesswoman, and help my family and my community.
I want to develop projects and programs that cause impact and social transformation, contributing to poverty eradication and community welfare. The Interweave Solutions program was a great opportunity for me because the MBS course not only taught me how to organize, manage and improve my business and projects, but also helped me to change my life for the better, improve my home, and do social activities that improve the quality of life in my community. This is, without a question, an extraordinary program because it not only covers business issues but also all areas of life. I am grateful to God for allowing me to be part of this program, to my husband who has always supported me, to my children and siblings who work with me, to the whole team at Interweave Solutions, and in particular to my Mentor Cynthya for her help and support every time I had any questions.
Haiti. My name is Dieuna Pierre-Louis, I am the founder of Madmwazèl Digital, an online media specialized in branding and social media management for ambitious entrepreneurs and future entrepreneurs wishing to digitize their business and attract more customers through the power of social media.
This is my history!
In June 2021, I was in a desperate situation. I was already a student with $0 in my bank account; I had no job; I didn’t know what to do; I couldn’t support myself or my family. I had just finished training as a Community Manager, but I didn’t know what to do anymore.
In November 2021, I was invited by a friend to join the MBS group. This group encouraged me to talk about what I can do and the business idea I had. Indeed, my idea was to create graphic content and manage social networks for all ambitious entrepreneurs who want to start an entrepreneurial adventure on the internet but have no knowledge or no time to manage their online business.
In December 2021, I took the decision to create a digital agency that I call Madmwazel Digital, this agency aims to help ambitious entrepreneurs to create their online brand while helping them to shine and assert themselves on social networks.
In January 2022, with only 109 and 114 followers on Instagram, I had my first two clients respectively, and today I’m moving forward in my business while applying the 6 P’s of business. By the way, the chapter on paperwork is my favorite. For me, paperwork or accounting is the heart of the business; without it, the business will not survive. I learned it thanks to this course.
I would like to thank the founding members, the ambassadors, and the staff manager for this extremely enriching training.
Mozambique. Nelma Xerinda: It was a very interesting and important journey for the phase that I am currently at in my life. For about 3 years I have been reading books about financial education and I have been working on ways to make money. In March I started a sewing course and I dream that next year I would start my own business and open my own dress studio, and this course was very helpful in designing my business plan.
I believe that by June of next year I will be reporting on this page what I have achieved in my life, and of course in other projects. I really enjoyed learning about the importance of community service; I confess that it was something new to me, which touched me a lot. I will try to serve and help my community. This course helped to open my mind and it showed me how to do my business in the right way. How to plan, project, do the marketing, how to save on fixed costs, record all business movements, etc etc. I learned all this and I can’t wait to implement it. I thank God for this experience. It was very good. Thank you very much to the MBS team!
Ecuador. Carmen Guañuna Collaguazo wrote: I learned a lot in this course because I had the guinea pigs for personal consumption but when I began to learn what the teacher taught us I felt motivated to go ahead and have my own business.
I am a woman from a humble community that lives from my daily work. I belong to a community and there we learn from when we are young to take care of the animals and to feed them with what the land gives us. I grew up thinking about how to improve my life and I found in Interweave Solutions the security I need to become a successful entrepreneur. We had a great instructor who taught us with a lot of wisdom and patience.
Panama. Maylin Martinez lives in a city in the north of her country called Chiriquí. She is a new Success Ambassador and is teaching a community of very poor people who live in the jungle region near her city. This group of mostly young people is dedicated to agriculture and animal husbandry. She decided to teach them because they are always in financial trouble and they were always asking for help.
She decided that it would be important to help them in a better way. She talked to them about the MBS program and they liked the idea, but told her they didn’t have money to pay for the course. They proposed to pay with products that they produced such as bananas, cassava, tropical fruits and even chickens. Maylin thought this was an excellent idea; the first day of the training everyone brought something and this was even useful for everyone to have lunch since most had to walk up to 40 km (25 mi) to get to the meeting place. The course ended after a couple of weeks and everyone is very happy and grateful because they have learned many things that are helping them make better use of their resources and above all, now they understand how important it is to keep records and apply what they have learned to become more self-sufficient.
Ghana. I am Harriet Ohenewaa, a young hardworking lady. I have worked with three micro credit companies. My experience with the success in the business training and certification program (MBS) has changed and improved the way I do my things in terms of pricing, investing and giving discounts to my loyal customers.
Personally, I have not prepared a budget for myself before, but through this program I plan, prepare my budget weekly, and this has helped me apportion my time wisely, increase my savings, and cut costs. Thanks be to God for this training by Agyapa Buabeng Foundation and Interweave Solutions, USA. I recommend the MBS program for anyone who wants to start or improve his or her business.
South Africa. Alicia Fallie: While studying through the Interweave Course, I have been learning a lot about how to balance my life and to constantly update my wheel of life by increasing value into my life.
I have learned that my business is not part of my personal life, thus family involvement is not applicable, unless they are part of the workforce. This experience for me has been empowering and I’ve gained so much knowledge.
