Ready to start a fish farming business to support and feed my children!

I need fish and tools to harvest fish. I have skills in fish farming and now business, and just need the capital to start my own small business.

My need and situation

I am a 20 year old mother of two and wife. I developed a fistula when my second child was born three months ago. I just got surgery and now my fistula is fixed and I am dry.

My goals are to start a fish farming business. I went through a business training program by an organization called Beyond Fistula where I learned how to run a small business to support myself and my children.

I need fish and tools to harvest the fish. I have skills in fish farming and now business, and once I have the capital to start my own small business there will be nothing standing in my way.

Meeting this need will help me because fish farming is a sustainable way to keep feeding my children as they grow and keep earning money for their school fees.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping Beidin fund this need.
