Lize

Lize, a widow with five children who owns a small fishing business in Mozambique, fell ill for three months. When she returned to work, she found that many of her fishing nets were ruined.

Through a microloan program, Lize was able to rebuild her business, allowing her to support the 16 members of her extended family and to build a concrete house.

Her success also helps sustain other self-employed women in her community who buy Lize's fish to sell at local markets.
