Frida's story

Mrs. Frida C. was born on February 28, 1987 in Dangbo in the Ouémé district, where she is from. She went to school up to grade 5. After having received her Certificate of Primary Studies (CPP) she left her classes to sell food items and clothing which she was doing at the same time as studying. Finally, she chose to sell "akassa" with fried fish and hot pepper sauce, commonly called "mojo". Six months ago, she went over to selling costume jewelry and ready-to-wear which she sells on orders received from her customers. It is with the intent of bolstering these businesses that she is requesting her third loan.
