Kikumba Group's story

Josée previously sold second hand shoes in markets on the outskirts of her town, but after giving birth to twins, she was no longer able to go to the market every day. Her husband who was a government employee provided financing for her to start selling fish.

This business currently supports the family because Josée's husband no longer works. Josée is in the picture with her husband.
