A loan of $525 helped a member to buy seafood and dried fish for resale.


And Disso De Birbirane Group's story

And Disso groups together 5 women who live in a small village located in the neighbourhood of the main town. Astou is their leader and sells seafood. She has 3 years experience in this line of work. She is requesting this loan to buy dried and smoked fish, and a variety of seafood which is part of the most popular local dish; gumbo soup. She has not got enough inventory as demand is stronger than supply. Astou is not burdened by any debt. She would like to eventually sell fish which is also popular with the inhabitants.

In this group: Astou , Ndoma, Khady, Diatou, Seynabou
