Enable Mitike to open a juice bar in Addis Ababa.



Mitike Chinesheo is a determined single mother of two who has overcome many hardships. After years of running a hair salon and selling used clothes, she plans to transform her business into a modern market and juice bar in Addis Ababa. This new venture will offer fresh, locally-sourced fruits and vegetables, juices, and salads, promoting healthy living in a community that lacks such options.

Her shop will create jobs and support local farmers by sourcing produce locally. Additionally, she plans to use food scraps as fertilizer, contributing to environmental sustainability. Mitike's ultimate dream is to help the needy and protect women and children from abuse. Through her new business, she aims to set a positive example for her children and other single mothers, showing that hard work and resilience can create meaningful change!
