Woinshet Tefera, self-help group member and farmer from Ethiopia with her goats

Woinshet Tefera

34-year-old widow, self-help group member and farmer
Abaye-Atir, North Shewa, Ethiopia

I was one of the poorest of the poor in my community and I was struggling to survive with my two children. But my life has changed significantly since I started rearing goats. Before receiving two goats, my income was not sufficient to cover my household expenses and I couldn’t meet the needs of my children.

Since I started rearing goats and earning an income from them, Woinshet Tefera, goat farmer from Ethiopia, stands in front of her new freezer holding a cokethe biggest difference in my children’s lives is that they are now happy and hopeful. I am able to provide adequate food for my children and pay for school expenses. My children’s future is bright!

I am on a good track and I am growing my business. I sold 10 goats for 6,850 birr, and bought a deep freezer and fridge and started selling soft drinks and beer. Now I am getting an average of 200 birr per day compared to less than 100 birr per day previously.

I maintain 13 goats which are all in good condition. I want to have a big area of land to expand my business and increase my herd of goats to large number.

Seeing how much these women appreciated the ‘hand up’ (not the hand out), the new feeling of power they had over their lives, and their plans for the future was really special. It was life-changing for them … and for us too.Maurice Walsh, long-time Canadian Feed The Children donor, comments after seeing the gift Women’s Credit in action.
