The women want a digital ‘object’ that collects data and immediately feeds the learning back. They see data as a way of learning, for themselves and for their groups. They want to be everything they can be.

When you join a self-reliant group, you can feel lost. You may have lost the sense of who you are. The self-reliant group helps women recover the sense of self. But they need to see that recovery.

They say other people can see our capabilities, but at beginning we cannot.

It is like going to the doctor when you are sick but you do not know what’s wrong. The doctor makes a diagnosis, tells you what the problem is, and then the problem has a name and your relationship to it changes. You know how to fight it because you can see it.

If we see our progress … If we can see our capabilities…

Then we can say, I did that.
