Mary is a pastor’s wife in Agape Life Church. She has all along depended on her husband’s
income for family needs, and a pastor’s income in Africa is often little to none. As a result, life
has not been easy. Mary believes that once she is trained as seamstress, she will be
economically empowered and say goodbye to the “husband dependency syndrome” which has
contributed to poverty in many families and also increased vulnerability of many women in her
country.
