Impact evaluation in progress
Project Description:
The main objective of the project is to help empower women and girls in the urban and rural community of Awash Fentale Woreda, Afar Regional State by supporting income generating activities. CFID trains project beneficiaries in business development skills and educates them about micro loans. Women are encouraged to become economically self-reliant through income generating activities in various fields: poultry and goat rearing, retail, resolving funds, and other home-based projects. Skill types are chosen by the clients on the grounds of marketability and low cost of materials required. The groups are later supported by the Woreda cooperative development office to legally organize in to a cooperative and to lay ground for future access to loans from microfinance institution.
Why this project is a Good Practice example:
This project is a good project example because it provides access to funding, builds business, financial management, and employable skills, and also targets marginalized women such as sex workers, destitute women, and widows.
Impact Evaluation:
Monthly field visits are conducted for monitoring the ongoing activities by responsible staffs from the head office to the project area and by project advisory committee that is composed of government bodies, clan leaders, community representatives and community based organization (CBOs).  Also, quarterly evaluations will also be performed by the responsible government officials.
Lessons Learned:
Working through existing structures eliminated the need to establish parallel structures to implement the project activities.  

There may be a need to strengthen the existing local structure to be more efficient and effective in implementation.
