Water means Lomitu saves time and earns more

Lomitu lives in Ethiopia. Until recently, she didn’t have access to safe water at home. To get water for her family, Lomitu walked about a half hour to an unprotected spring to collect water. It took her another half hour to walk back home with heavy, full vessels. Lomitu made this trip three times each day. This was time she could not spend making injera, the Ethiopian bread she sells for a living.
