Pamela is an entrepreneur and a widow with five adult children. She produces and sells stoves to support her family, send her kids to school, and save for her personal needs. "I've been able to build a house for my family. I have settled my family from the proceeds of this business. I've been able to take my kids through school from the proceeds of this business. So this business is of much help to me."
