Chiyembekezo Group's story

Tereza is aged 35 and has six children whose responsibility lies in her hands. She sells usipa (small fish) in order to adequately support her family, but despite these efforts, life is a struggle for her. As such, she decided to take a loan so she could sufficiently meet the needs of her family members by being able to pay their medical bills and school fees. She would like to obtain a loan to expand her business, increasing her stock of fish.

Tereza plans to build a better house for her family members. Although she still faces some minor challenges, accessing loans has improved her living standards as she is now able to provide food for her family members.
