A loan of $900 helped to strengthen her stock by buying cartons of cod and tuna fish, as well as powdered milk, sugar, extracts, and packaging bags.

Denise's story

Denise is a 45-year-old married woman and mother of seven children. In 1993, she started selling salted fish at the market with a capital of 50,000F. On a good day, her sales can reach 50,000F but are closer to 25,000F on a slow day.

She will use this third loan to strengthen her business by buying seven cartons of cod and five cartons of tuna fish. She makes yogurt packets so she will also buy one bag of powdered milk, one bag of sugar, some extracts, and five packs of packaging bags.

Her primary ambition is to expand her activity. Her goal is to be able to stock 30 cartons to bolster her sales and increase her profits in order to help her oldest daughter pursue studies abroad after completing her bachelor’s degree. She strives to keep her business at the top.
