Mrs. Maryang Garos lives at Rim, a village of about sixty kilometres from Jos township. She was given some money to trade. She now lives entirely from the profits she makes from the trading businesses in her small shop. Her husband was a Minister with the Church of Christ in Nigeria (COCIN). This (90) ninety year-old woman told us that she has a bank accounts into which she saves part of the profits while she uses some for the maintenance.
Before the V. C. M. came to help her, she did not have any one to help her. She is the last born in her family. One can imagine that the elderly ones have died, considering her age at ninety. No help came from her husband people who could not even help themselves. "They were three in number, two died, remaining the elderly one who would not help himself not to talk of helping me", she said.
