I wish my friends could get the trainings I got through POTENTIAL

The business in the picture is a boutique owned and run by Tsegaw Haile in Maychew Town. The boutique in its current capacity is worth 80,000 Birr. This is not the only business Tsegaw owns and runs. He also has another boutique in the same town worth 25,000 Birr. In addition to the two businesses, Tsegaw has saved 15,000 Birr in ‘equb’ (local saving scheme). He attributes all to POTENTIAL and the trainings he received from the project.
