Yalemzewd - YCI Ethiopia Graduate
Yalemzewd grew up in Golam Mikael, an underprivileged area of Addis Ababa. After her father’s death, the family moved to Higher Tena, which is another village far away from the city centre. In order to afford to support her family, Yalemzewd’s mother had to partition their small house and rent out the four small rooms.
During Yalemzewd’s participation in the programme, she showed great interest in the Finance Department, where she spent more time learning skills in the different areas, from accounting and purchasing to cost control. After graduating from the programme, Yalemzewd worked for a water company before being accepted into a graduate programme of a bank where she is now a permanent employee.
