Friday we proctored our first set of exams - and good news, every woman met some of her learning goals! And some women met all their goals.
For example, one of our loan recipients, Fani, scored a perfect 20/20 on her exam (Peruvian schools grade out of 20). She met all her goals! Now she can set new goals for the next cycle and keep learning.
The woman who scored the lowest on her exam was also the woman who had set the most ambitious goals for herself. Juliana, who couldn't even write her name when she joined us, wanted to learn the alphabet, learn how to add numbers greater than 100, and wanted to learn to read fluently (all in three months!). After three months, she has learned to write her name and add small numbers, but is still working on her advanced goals.
Juliana, our ambitious literacy student, shows off three scarf models she learned to make during our knitting sequence this month.
