Afi's story

Afi is a 25-year-old married woman living with her husband and her two children. She sells smoked fish in her neighborhood and gets supplies at the big refrigerator twice a week. Her wish is to have a loan to purchase even more fresh fish to bring back for smoking and then selling. This increase will enable her to develop her sales and to grow her income. Then she could cover household expenses.
