Investing in Ethiopia's women - video

May 11, 2010

Plan is working with women and families in Ethiopia to improve their household income and lift themselves out of poverty.



Ethiopia is one of the world's poorest countries and is heavily indebted. Plan is working with women and families to improve their economic household security - by building up their income and assets, and acquiring the skills they need to secure a livelihood.

Plan's projects include providing support, advice and training to help women run small businesses and supporting small income-generating projects such as bio-intensive home gardening schemes.

Plan is also helping women manage their finances through microfinance programs: the women borrow money, invest it and make a profit which they use to repay their loans and expand their businesses.
