A loan helped to buy fish in enough quantity to deliver them.

07_ Miss 1 Group's story

The group was created in 2015 at the same time as the village bank. The group is made up of 9 women who all live in the village. They maintain good relationships of solidarity and cooperation. They all work in the fish business.

Madame Gnima, 40 years old, standing at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is the representative of the group. She is married and mother to 7 children, including 4 girls. She works in the fish shop because she lives in a village of fishermen. She buys fish on the dock and resells them in the surrounding village and sometimes even the capital because she has a delivery car and lives in a tourist zone.

With her loan, she plans to buy fish in enough quantity to deliver it. The profits generated from this business will serve to reinforce the business but will also contribute to family expenses.
