A loan helped to buy shrimp and ice.

Agousta's story

Agousta, 49, lives with her husband and her five children who attend school.
Agousta buys shrimp at the fishing docks and resells them retail.
She is very dynamic in her work and is proud of it, as it is a noble and rewarding trade.
Her business is going well because the customers like seafood.
Agousta is requesting a loan of 200,000 FCFA to pay for more shrimp and ice in order to expand her trade.
Agousta is very conscientious about her chidren's education, which is why she will invest part of her profits in their education; another part will go towards meeting her needs and another part towards meeting the family's needs.
Agousta dreams of having financial autonomy so she can develop her business well and prepare her children's future well.
