One thing I learned and experienced a lot while living in Assosa, was seeing the impacts and effects of international aid organisations, both positive and negative aspects.

Two very close friends of mine run a non-profit microenterprise development organisation in Assosa, which I personally think is one of the most influential ways of helping people to develop their lives. They give interest free loans to people who don’t have the assets to access banks, and the money helps them to develop their own businesses. This is a video of their organisation, giving more information on what they do, and the clients’ stories.

You can find out more on their website
