Habesha Finance ,

The potential is great

I’d be very interested if this podcast can continue to develop. So much potential for this especially for those of us diasporas and others who are eager to learn Amharic. Are there plans to add more episodes and continue this podcast?

Welcome back!

You were greatly missed! I shocked my father in law. He praised my wife and she gave you full credit. Please teach me more.

It sounds like you guys have been busy! 👼🏽 Congratulations! But we still need our lessons 😁
