09_ Gpf Yontabe Fanaye Group's story

This six-member group was created in November 2018. Members are experienced in their respective economic activities and are very supportive of one another. They live in the same area and their main business is agriculture.

Hawa, standing on the right-hand side of the photo with her hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 34 years old and is married with four children who are aged between 7 and 15. Hawa is a market gardener (principally growing onions) and practices cattle fattening. Half of the funding will be used to buy market gardening essentials (for seeding, transplanting and irrigation) and the resulting harvest of onions will be sold to vendors in her area. The remaining half of the funding will be used to buy two beef cattle for fattening over six months before resale.

With the profits this generates Hawa plans to increase her sales revenue, meet her family's needs and ensure that her children receive an education.
