MISSION CAPSULES: With the support of Presbyterians, marginalized women in India are turning modest loans and savings into promising futures - just ask Pushpa. After losing her husband in an accident, Pushpa wondered how she would support her two daughters without a source of income. It was not until she discovered a PWS&D supported program assisting hundreds of women in the slums of Chennai that she was able to take control of her future. Pushpa joined a self-help group and received an initial loan of 20,000 rupees (about $375.00). With this money she purchased a cart to sell her vegetables and used the profits to send both of her daughters to school. Last year, PWS&D helped community organizations to form 129 self-help groups - made up of over 1800 women and men.

MORE PARAPROSDOKIANS:

- War does not determine who is right - only who is left!

- Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

- They begin the evening news with "good evening", then proceed to tell you that it isn't.

- To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

- I thought I wanted a career. Turns out, I just wanted paychecks!

- Buses stop in bus stations. Trains stop in train stations. My desk is a work station!

Have a good week. MB
