A loan of $300 helped buy fresh fish to sell at the local market.

Bongal's story

Mrs. Bongal is a 45-year-old widow and mother of eight children, of whom the eldest is 22 years old and the youngest 3 years old.

She has been active in the sale of fresh fish for 10 years now. She starts her day at 8 am and finishes at 2 pm.

She began her business using her own funds and as she would like to increase her working capital, she is applying for a 150,000 FCFA credit loan to meet the needs of her customers.

Since she became a widow, Bongal has been managing all of her family's daily expenses. To ensure her family's well-being and improve their living conditions, Bongal wants to build her own house.
