Union Des Femmes Progressistes De Desgrottes (Unio's story

In the year 2002, Marie Jeanette gathered a group of dedicated women to form UFPD: Union des Femmes Progressistes de Desgrottes (Union of Progressive Women of Desgrottes). Those women understood their responsibility in the development of their community. Therefore, Marie Jeanette encouraged them to launch an agricultural products storage business in 2011. Regular contributions of members were used as capital to start this activity. The leader, along with the team, decided to use profits earned to support the financial activities of the members, particularly the purchase and sale of shrimp. Because of its high profitability, Marie Jeanette is seeking a loan to increase the means of vulnerable women inside the association, and to increase shrimp purchases.
