Goretti Nyabenda, the beautiful Burundian woman, exemplifies what takes hold when a woman is provided with what writers Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn call "a few drops of oil in the crankcase." For Goretti, those drops were money management training and a supportive network of other women. CARE helped Goretti and the women of her community start a village savings and loan association, which they called Twitwararikane (to take care of each other). With no outside capital, the women used their pooled savings to create a loan fund. Goretti is now an entrepreneur with livestock and a small shop. Goretti Nyabenda talks about the struggles she endured and overcame to become CARE's 2010 recipient of the "I am Powerful" award.
