Doreen, 31, has a fish selling business in Nkhotakota District of Malawi. After starting her business in 2020, she has achieved a lot from her initial capital of 20,000MK (£20/$25).
She said, “I managed to start saving in the Village Savings Group and as a result have been able to buy five goats, three ducks and five chickens. I now have an animal rearing business and I also bought a canoe with legal fishing gears.”
Doreen, a mother-of-one, said her business has been successful as a result of the Fish for Tomorrow project introduced by Ripple Africa.
She continued, “I advise my fellow women in the project area not to look down upon themselves. I am teaching the community how to conserve fish too as I am the treasurer of our Beach Village Committee.”
