Working for Himself

Blooming Onion Business

Chalise and Gelgelo are husband and wife, who have three children. Gegelo was in the military, but because he was not healthy, he left the military, returned to his village, and married his wife, Chalise. After he came back, he was earning a very small income from the government, which was not enough money to run his family. The children were growing and so were their needs, so they found a solution in joining the Transformational Community Development (TCD) group. Before they joined, they had watched their friends progress, and this inspired them a lot, too.
