Maman Pauline is a widow who attempted to support her elderly mother through various goods she sold in a run-down table outside their home. They were struggling to have enough to eat; hope was growing thin.

Along with help from Mercy Ships, Mwana was able to outfit Pauline’s new permanent store through renovations and startup goods. She is now able to provide for herself and her mother through more a secure and predictable income with dignifying work.
