'Men don't trust we're strong enough': Somali women push into fish industry
Fardowsa Mohamed Ahmed: ‘... men take advantage of these cultural norms and block women who try to join the businesses they traditionally dominate.’
To pay rent for a space in the market and to buy an icebox to store her fish, Ahmed took out a $300 (£246) loan from KIMS Microfinance, the first privately owned microfinance institution in Somalia, when it opened in 2014. She has been able to gradually expand her business.
