In her free time she likes to run with her friends in her neighborhood. Her parents are divorced and her mom works as a daily laborer to support her family. Sisay’s mother explains, “Our family gets different advantages from the [GGRF] program like clothes, food, and tutorial. The savings group is helpful too. Thank you for this support. We share ideas and experiences at the savings group too, it’s not just about money. I love that part of the savings group. IT’s very helpful.”
