Yeshihareg lives in Tuka Village. She is a widow, 39 years old, whose husband died five years ago. They did not have children, so she was hopeless.
Today, Yeshihareg is a leader of the Transformational Community Development (TCD) Women’s Group in Tuka Village. Two years ago, GHNI lent the group 30,000 Birr (about $1,450) for 12 women to start a goat-raising project. They bought 42 goats, and Yeshihareg received three goats.
