Sohamede's story

Sohamede is a 54-year-old married woman who sells small fried fish in her neighborhood. Twice a week, she gets supplies at the big fishing port. Her wish is to have a loan to pay for even more baskets of small fish and containers of oil to bring back for frying and to sell to her customers. This increase will enable her to develop sales and grow revenues. Then she could help cover expenses at home.
