You, Women in Business, and Roots Ethiopia

We believe that with grants and guidance, women with poor access to economic resources can join a network that nourishes their strengths, broadens their practical and entrepreneurial skill sets, and gives bloom to their small business potential. All while providing a safe space for camaraderie and mentoring. Our Self-Help Entrepreneurs (SHE) network offers the support these women in Ethiopia need to become self-reliant.

When you donate to the SHE network, you provide skills development, small business grants, and peer support groups to budding female entrepreneurs.


Meet Ayalech, a mother of six who has started and grown her own business.

After the SHE network provided crucial resources, Ayelech no longer struggled to send her children to school or sleep on a dirt floor. She’s grown a fruit-selling business and is employing five other women in her village. She is saving money for the first time.

Give $250 and you provide a female entrepreneur a start-up grant and business training.
