Guyo’s Plans to Diversify

Harowayo Village, Ethiopia


Guyo lives in Harowayo Village. He is 48 years old, married, and has five children. Guyo was the first person in Harowayo Village attracted by the Transformational Community Development (TCD) strategy. He immediately became a member of the Agriculture Group. Guyo is also a member of the TCD Agriculture Committee.


During discussion with him, it was evident Guyo understood that dependence on herding is very dangerous when droughts occur. He could lose all of what he has, so he has a very good vision to diversify his activities instead of depending on one area. In addition to this, he has plans to start work in agriculture on his own. Guyo understands all the techniques and benefits of TCD.
