A loan of $325 helped to purchase smoked fish to resell during shortages.


Dieynaba's story

Dieynaba is a 43 years old woman and a married mother of a family. She manages a public fountain in the district and also sells smoked fish. During this rainy season, smoked fish is in high demand. This is why Dieynaba wants to borrow money to purchase and store some of it. She will wait for times of shortages and then resell the goods at a higher price. Being married, she supports her husband and helps to meet family expenses. If she sees her capital increase, she would love to diversify her business to maximize her profit and be able to take better care of her household.
