When Meseret moved to Nazret with her husband and baby, they were so poor that the other villagers thought they were beggars. Meseret survived on scraps of food and was so malnourished that she couldn’t breastfeed her daughter. Today, thanks to Tearfund’s self-help groups in Ethiopia, Meseret can pay for food and school fees, and her family is part of a loving church community. “The group allowed me to take a 50 Birr loan and I bought and sold charcoal for a good profit. I started making handicrafts and was able to send my child to school”. These groups not only provide business loans to one another but also build self-esteem and provide vital social support for childcare and healthcare bills.
