A loan of $275 helped to buy different types of fish for smoking.


Cecilia's story

Cecilia is a fishmonger living in Wegbe, Hohoe. Cecilia has received an education through the middle school level, but could go no further because she had no one to pay her fees. She is a divorcee with seven children.

Cecilia has been smoking and selling fish for 16 years now. When her husband divorced her, she was in need of extra funds in order to maintain the household, so she has introduced the selling of boiled maize. This is allowing her to receive a greater profit, which allows her to better support the financial needs of her children.

Her loan will be used to buy different types of fish for smoking. She intends to place as much of her new profits into savings as possible so she can give her best possible effort to her children.
