A loan of $625 helped to grow and sell mushrooms.


Dassigan's story

Ms. Dassigan A. was born in 1959 in Lomé and has eight people to support. After the death of her husband, she is alone in coping with household expenses. A very devoted and enterprising woman, she began growing mushrooms. This a food used in the culinary arts just like fish or meat is when making sauces. Currently, the demand exceeds the supply, but she lacks the means for responding to the requirements of her customers. This is why she's requesting financing for buying work tools and all the elements associated with this kind of farming. The profits derived will enable her to improve her family's living conditions.
