16 months of WAWCAS has gone so fast. There is a saying; the flowing river never will come back again, just like time never waits for you, time is always moving. Already 16 months have passed. I can’t believe it, but it is fact. During the end of the period, I would like to reflect on my 16-month period with the WAWCAS program. When I compare Dhana Maya 16 months ago to Dhana Maya today, I can feel and see the positive changes.
The WAWCAS program was an opportunity to discover and learn many things. Throughout this program, I learned that we shouldn’t be scared of challenges. We should get rid of them and should grab the opportunities. The knowledge in IBT is very helpful and I am going to follow it throughout my life.
Now I have set specific goals. This program has totally changed me. For me, these 16 months are full of sweet and victorious experiences. I have learned so many behavioral and social things which plays a vital role in my life. Each and every tool are very useful and have taught me a lot. PCA taught me how to control my unnecessary expenses and save income. Likewise, SWOT also made me realize that I too have many strengths and I am able to change many of my weaknesses into strengths. PSRP taught me how to review myself and understand how to look back and compare my life today with my life before. PSRP really inspired me to improve myself. Not only these tools but issue-based training (IBT) are also very impressive. Every topic of IBT helped me to learn new things and also brought many social changes in my life. Today whenever I look back, I feel so happy that my life has been changed and I feel proud of that. I will never forget that Binita stressed we have to spend expenses only from profit, not from the sales. If we spend our money from the sales for school fees and daily expenses, then our businesses will not be sustainable. Therefore, we have to make our business profitable and we should only spend from the profit money. I would like to give special thanks to Binita, without whom this would not have been possible.
At last, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the whole WAWCAS team for changing my whole life, it would not have been possible without their support. I became a female entrepreneur because of the WAWCAS program. I still remember I was inspired by Sabita and how she managed to change her life and due to her suggestion, I was ready to be part of WAWCAS program. I would like to commit myself to never be dependent on anyone else, I will be self –reliant and self-sustainable in my whole life.
I hope you enjoyed the journey of Dhana Maya. Her journey is a great learning experience for me as well. Whenever we met her achievement boosted my energy. In her group, all of them have good businesses. We have had many ups and downs, but we succeeded in our journey and all of them have increased their savings and are able to operate by themselves. I am so proud to be the LPL of this program.
Now time to say goodbye and I would like to thank everyone who has followed Dhana Maya.
