“With the support of 1000 juveniles and 70 bags of fish feed, I was able to expand my business. It came as a relief to me; the support came at a time when I was borrowing money to feed my fish.
“It increased my number of stocks from 1,000 to 4,000 fish. From three fish ponds, I now have six ponds. My profit margin increased and my contribution to the upkeep of my home increased too. It made life more meaningful for me.
“I have one staff member and one trainee. YAGEP is a game changer for me. It took my business to the path of growth. I now restock to sell every two months.”
