Collecive Action groups by Women for Women in Ethiopia

Women in Ethiopia are starting their own collective action groups. Women of younger age are able to collect honey and sell at local markets at low prices. The findings in this article show this experience to differ to that of Oxfam's findings through research in Mali and Tanzania where working women are often married, with families to care for and are of older age. These small start ups are perfect illustrations of development in the African towns where opportunities are scarce but people have high motivations, dreams and are committed workers of the land. The article exemplifies the mass opportunities available for investors, student work projects, international programs financed by governmental institutions.
