dc.description.abstract Lack of employment opportunities and poor economic conditions, because of rapid population growth in Ethiopia, has forced large portions of the labor force to turn to the informal sector for income generation and employment. Poor women in rural Ethiopia are disproportionally and negatively impacted. The target population is comprised of twenty women living with HIV in Shashamene, Ethiopia. The project interventions included businesses development skills training, formation of a rotating credit association (Iquib), and linkage to microfinance. This project indicated the intervention resulted in increased assets, income, sustainable microenterprises, and changes in their perception of empowerment. (Author abstract) en_US
