A loan of $750 helped to stock and sell smoked fish.


Agbéhoédé's story

Ms. Agbéhoédé G. was born in 1969 in Klologalanvé. She is a married mother of four who has also been taking care of her older sister's two children since their mother's death. Her business is selling smoked fish, which earns her the income necessary to meet her family's needs. The quality of her work and her rigorous business management allow her to earn a decent living. As demand for her product is growing, she does not have the means to satisfy all of her customers.

She is thus requesting a loan of $750 to build a stock of smoked fish in order to meet the demand at the local market. The success of her business will allow her to improve her family's living conditions.

Née en 1969 à Klologalanvé, Madame G. Agbéhoédé est mariée et mère de quatre (4) enfants et à sa charge deux (2) enfants de sa sœur aînée décédée. Son activité principale est la vente de poissons fumés d’où elle tire le revenu nécessaire pour subvenir aux besoins de sa famille. La qualité de son travail et la gestion rigoureuse qu’elle en fait lui procure un revenu acceptable. Avec une demande de plus en plus croissante, elle n’a pas suffisamment de moyens pour satisfaire tous les clients.

Elle sollicite alors un concours financier d’un montant de $750 pour un stock de poissons fumés et satisfaire les demandes sur le marché. Le succès de cette activité lui permettra d’améliorer les conditions de vie de sa famille.
