A Filipino domestic worker in Singapore has become a successful entrepreneur who runs multiple businesses after her employer of 22 years paid for her business classes.
Jocelyn Mompal, 58, recently shared with Shin Min Daily News that her long-time employer, surnamed Wang, was instrumental in her drive to improve herself.
According to Mompal, Wang convinced her to sign up for entrepreneurship, time and money management courses in 2008 and footed the bill. The 75-year-old educator even brought Mompal with her to drama workshops.
"[Wang] supports me, understands me, gives me enough freedom, and encourages me to continue to learn and improve myself," Mompal was quoted as saying.

Wang even attended the wedding of Mompal’s daughter in the Philippines. "I treated her family like my own," she said.

Mompal still has two years left until her eligibility to work as a domestic worker comes to an end, as the maximum age for domestic workers that Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower allows is 60 years old.
"I'll miss her very much,” Mompal said. “Thanks to her encouragement and allowing me to start my own business, I will have an independent source of income after retirement.

STORY: One of the world's richest men, Jeff Bezos, is seeking to reverse deforestation and land degradation on around 250 million acres of land in Africa by 2030.That's according to Andrew Steer, chief executive of the Amazon founder's Bezos Earth Fund, speaking during the Reuters Impact conference on Tuesday (October 4)."Africa is a place where 60 percent of the soils have been degraded, so by restoration, what we mean is a very simple idea of taking the carbon up there in the atmosphere where its causing a lot of trouble, it's bringing it down to earth through the magic of photosynthesis into trees and bushes and crops and soils, where it brings better incomes for farmers, better food security, more resilient soils, richer soils, healthier people etc…I'm making it sound really great, and that's cause it is great. And the good thing is that there is now something called Africa 100, 100 million hectares of land in Africa to be brought back."The initiative is led by African Union countries.The Bezos Earth Fund has pledged 30% of its $10 billion fund towards nature conservation, restoration, and food systems transformation.The actual grants issued so far, a spokesperson said, total a little over $1.5 billion.Africa has contributed very little in terms of global greenhouse gas emissions.But the continent's countries are among the most vulnerable to its effects – as evidenced by recent floods and storms, as well as the Horn of Africa's worst drought in four decades.Developing countries have been increasingly demanding that wealthier, carbon-emitting nations pay reparations for climate-induced disasters."Rich countries are going to have to play a bigger role on creating resilience on helping poor countries and poor citizens to adapt."Steer said that the Bezos Earth Fund is seeking to build a coalition of African and European countries around this year's U.N. climate summit – taking place in Egypt in November – to add heft to land restoration efforts.
