A loan of $600 helped to buy a freezer and some fish.


Firmine's story

Firmine is a 42-year-old woman from Cameroon. She is married and the mother of five children between the ages of 23 and 5. She has been preparing and selling braised fish in one of her city's neighborhoods for almost three years. Since she does not have a freezer to keep fish in a cool place, she has to stock up every day at a local market. She would like to use her loan to buy a new freezer, as well as health drinks, to go with the fish that she cooks. With her profits, she will be able to give a better future to her children.
