Disguised Enslavement of Women by Men

reetings to women of substance over the world. This is a true story that has been happening to my neighbor before my intervention. This woman happens to be the fifth wife to this man, note taken is the fact that all the other four wives did not stay up toa year with this man because of his cruel nature. All along she has suffered many assaults from this man, she lost her first pregnancy due to this assault. I transferred to a nearby house just four months today and i realized when ever this man wants to beat the woman, he will lock the door. I became so furious and worried about it and really wanted to discover why all the beatings.

I took the courage to approachher and she told me her husband is hiding under the canopy of being a pastor whereas he is a double dealer and has told her never to tell anyone about this. All the times he has sexual affairs with girls whom he calls daughters in the church. He seldomly gives this woman food money. What really made her seethat this man couldkill her one day was whenshe was severely assaulted upon her entrance to the house from a saloon to plaither hair, this cruel man pulled outfive strands of mesh off her hair then she collapsed but the man did not see her condition as a call for concern, instead he left and spentthe night with one of his numerous girl friends.I asked her if she has no relation that she couldgo talk to about her suffering, but she told me she is the only person that the entire family is looking up to and that she has no where to hide her head but in this man's house. With the baby she has to take care of, it is impossible for her to leave this man's house because she has not even 1,000frs CFA to boost of.

I decided to give her an interest free loan of 50,000frs CFA, then i taught her how to fry puff- puff for sale because what i realised from findingswas the fact that this enslavement wasdue to noempowermentas a woman and so she does not contribute positively to the family income.I registered this woman to a daily collections so that as she sells she plays 1000frs CFA to enable her pay back the loan withoutstress. I also had a talk with this man though he sounded so arrogant, i made himunderstand the dangers of this cruel altitude of his.

She has greatly been empowered economically and financially and she is really doing well in business and no assault has been noticed for the past two months.

To all parents, please train your boy children on how to treat women fairly because being a violato
