To expand her spice-business, Aynalem needs:



Empower Aynalem to bring natural spices to her community



Aynalem is an example of a strong woman with a difficult fate. After the death of her mother, she was forced to marry an older man to provide security and financial support for her family. But after the birth of her daughter marriage turned into a  nightmare full of abuse   and Aynalem was forced to flee. She worked as a domestic worker for the family for 15 years and was able to provide her daughter with a good future. Now it's time for Aynalem!

This is how Aynalem describes her business idea: “My vision is to create a brand that makes a positive impact by offering locally sourced top-quality spices. I aim to address the health and nutrition concerns within our community by providing spices that are free from additives and conservatives." Moreover, this spice-business will also support local farmers by creating business opportunities for them.

Let's help Aynalem realize his dream!
