A loan of $1,050 helped purchasing ovens and fresh produce for fish smoking business.


Yawa's story

Born in Havé (Adétikopé) in 1954, Yawa A. is married and the mother of seven children. She does well from her fish smoking business, which she has been running for the last few years and she wishes to expand the business into other nearby areas. She is requesting a loan to put in some high capacity ovens to smoke and preserve the fish and to buy a large quantity of fresh fish to serve to her customers. Selling her produce will bring in an income capable of improving the whole family’s quality of life.
