Another great success story: A struggling pastor of a small, struggling church, Paul kept chickens to sell to try and make ends meet. (Pastors in Kenya are not always paid by their congregations.) Going through NVI’s training was like throwing a rope to a drowning man. He immediately put our training into practice, and even began teaching his congregation what he was learning! He used our training on Sales and Marketing to find new and better clients, which allowed him to expand his poultry business. He has even diversified into keeping sheep as well.
From our perspective, though, the best result has been the impact on his children. Listen to what he says in the video (link below – copy and paste to your browser if it does not open automatically.)
An elementary school teacher, Fred took our initial training and radically changed how he and his wife were managing their money, resulting in a lot more marital harmony! Eventually he took the advice of the men in his group and ceased some of his “exotic” business ventures and has started a sure thing – a poultry business. Not only that, he has begun training some of his first-graders to put aside savings out of any money they receive. The next generation is learning good habits early!
