Gloriose operates her shop inside a water kiosk provided to the community by a CRS-led project designed to reduce childhood malnutrition. The income she earns helps support her family and provide nutritious food for her daughter Nshutinziza.
In 2017, Gloriose Uwamahoro’s daughter Nshutinziza Laetitia was suffering from moderate malnutrition. Motivated by her husband Karekezi Jean Pierre, Gloriose joined a CRS-led project designed to reduce childhood malnutrition. The project works with the Rwandan government to improve community health services, educate families on healthy diets, train farmers to grow nutritious food, encourage saving money and invest in better sanitation. Gloriose learned how to prepare a balanced diet for her daughter, Nshutinziza recovered and Gloriose continues feeding her well. Gloriose also joined a micro-savings group that taught her how to manage her income.
