Mawussi's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy 2 cartons of fish, 1 bottle of oil, and 1 row of wood.

Mawussi's story

Mawussi is a young woman of 27. She sells fried fish in her neighborhood. Mawussi stocks up her large refrigerator twice a week.

Mawussi plans to use this loan to purchase more cartons of fresh fish, oil, and wood in order to fry the fish to sell to her buyers. This increase in capital will allow her to develop her business and increase her revenue in order to cover household expenses.
