Help end chronic hunger, poverty in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. We empower millions to achieve lasting progress in health, education, nutrition and family
When The Hunger Project-Ethiopia came to our area, and I joined the African Women's Food Farmer Initiative (AWFFI) loan group and got Birr 300.
I returned my rented land since I got money to buy grain seeds for cultivation. So, by part of the money I bought seeds and by the rest of the money I purchased a sheep.
In the last rainy season, I cultivated six quintals of teff and wheat from the land. Now, I kept part of the product as a seed for next time cultivation, part for family consumption and part for sale.
My family's history is now changing. I am able to cultivate and use my land. I can say that this is the product of AWFFI program. I become a real mother -- a supporter of my children, owner of land, decision-maker and a leader of a family.
