Most people find it impossible to overcome poverty because it’s no longer just poverty to them, but has turned into a trap which they live in. Their mind sets are so poverty stricken that it becomes almost impossible for them to realise when a door out of the poverty trap opens for them. They become so used to poverty that they can’t imagine themselves living a prosperous life. I’ve once had a lady colleague who used to send a “Call back” whenever she needed something from me. She would send me a “Call back” even on her pay day. She did not realise that it’s her pay day and she could actually afford to buy airtime and call me. That’s an extent to which poverty can trap a person.
