CREATING LASTING CHANGE FROM WITHIN

Hindya’s Journey: Empowerment Through Support

Recognized as a vulnerable individual in need of assistance, Hindya was connected to Cheshire’s disability support services by the local government. Since then, her life has undergone a remarkable transformation. She has not only become a member of Cheshire’s credit cooperative but has also honed her business skills through their training program. With the aid of a small loan, she embarked on her entrepreneurial journey, specializing in baking and selling biscuits and sambusas (samosas, known as “sambusa” in Amharic).

Hindya’s treats quickly found popularity in the market, thanks to a friend who helped showcase her products. This remarkable turnaround in her life became possible due to Ethiopiaid’s generous funding of Cheshire’s Services for disabled women.

The training provided by Cheshire has translated into tangible improvements for Hindya. She now manages to save 20 birr, equivalent to $1, every day from her newfound income. This modest daily savings means that she can afford essentials like a kilogram of wheat or teff, the local staple used to make injera, as well as a small variety of fruits and vegetables.

The radiant smile on Hindya’s face is a testament to the significant impact that even a dollar a day can make in the life of someone determined to uplift themselves. Through the invaluable support of our donors, Hindya’s dream of expanding her business and providing for her family is steadily turning into a reality.
