Vincentia is the mother to ten children, including two sets of twins. Her story of poverty begins In 1980, when during her 7th pregnancy she suffered an obstetric fistula injury, and she lost that child.
Since the birth and loss of her 7th child, she has known about a surgery that could heal her, but she did not believe she could afford it until she heard a radio announcement for Kitovu Hospital, which operates a fistula surgery camp four times per year.
Vincentia received treatment at Kitovu in 2013 and has fully recovered. Since then, she has joined the Piglet Living Loan Project and has recruited two women who have become her good friends and who are her support system.
