Yenenesh's story

Yenenesh Bogale   

"My name is Yimenash Bogale.  I am a member of Edget behibret ’’Growth in unity”  SHG and live in Hawassa town.  I am married with six family members. Before joining my group, I used to stay at home and depended on my husband’s income. I didn’t have the concept of saving and I used to spend whatever I got unwisely. As I didn’t make a contribution to the household expenses, my participation in decision making was very minimal. My husband was the one who used to decide everything in our house. 

When I joined my group, I learned to save and to make good use of what I have. I also learned business skills and with the loan I took from my group, I started to produce and sell local brew in my house. I generate a profit and can help with the household expenses. Our lives are improving through time. My communication skills are also improving. I am able to express my ideas freely in my group and sometimes, I represent my group in public meetings. My social bond with the community is also getting very strong.”
