A loan of $675 helped to strengthen her stock with the purchase of cartons of cod, sole, and tuna fish.

Jacqueline's story

Mother Jacky is 53 years old and single with two children ages 17 and 27, one of whom attends school while the other works in the same trade as his mother, the retail sale of salted fish.

Jacky began selling salted fish in 2006 at the Plateau market with a capital of 55,000F. Her secret is the diversification of merchandise. Her daily sales range from 20,000 to 50,000F.

With this third cycle loan, she plans to buy four cartons of cod, two cartons of sole, and two cartons of tuna fish.

Her business growth strategy to increase her revenue is to set up nice displays and greet her customers kindly.

“May God bless me, and may my children understand what I do so that they may one day assist me.''
