It felt terrible leaving South Sudan. My children and I had to flee because of the fighting and walked to the refugee settlement. Before I joined the Seed Effect savings group, I was leading a miserable life. But after I joined, the group changed my life. I experienced much trauma in South Sudan that I am now starting to release. I am a bit freer because of the consolation that I get from the group. I am very happy right now because the money that we have contributed is able to help us save and now we can get a loan and we will earn more when we share out the money. It is helping us a lot. At first I was having problems but now my problems have almost been solved because of Seed Effect. Now I have hope.
