"I am 31 years old, married, mother of 3 children and a trained veterinarian. After my studies, I could not find a job. So, I had the idea of opening a shop selling veterinary and phytosanitary products, since I also had some knowledge in the treatment of plant diseases. I was lucky enough to receive financial support and technical assistance from the PROVAPA-TUGWIZAKAZI project. Since then, my turnover has multiplied by 13! I have been able to open 4 other shops and hire 4 people, who have been trained by the project."
