An Inspiring Woman

Didi Hara Village, Ethiopia


Giving the men some competition, Bontu is actively working alongside the men in the field. Most of the group members are amazed and encouraged by her. Bontu is a 29-year-old married woman with two children. Every day, from morning to noon, she is out working in the field. Before she joined the Agriculture Group, life was hard and she did not have any income to support her family. Bontu was entirely dependent on her husband, financially, but her husband did not have a regular income. He worked as a daily laborer. Challenged with irregular income to support his family, if there was no work, there was no income. Now that Bontu is engaged with our Agriculture Group, she started making very good money and their family income has become stable.
