This woman is a resident of Agoè Zongo, which is a district in downtown Lomé. In 2005, she started doing commerce in soaps and ointments that she makes herself. She sells at the wholesale and retail levels. She is the only one operating in this business in this area, which means she realizes some good sales figures. Today, her stock of raw materials for making soaps and ointments is exhausted. She must buy more and is therefore asking for her first loan to buy seven sacks of flour, six drums of acid, and a drum of ointment. She is married and the mother of four. With what she earns from her commerce, she helps her husband cover household expenses.
