Ama Dzigbodi
This woman lives in the Avépozo neighborhood of Lomé. She is the mother of 3 children. After her husband passed away and she became a widow, in 1999 she began producing small, traditional cookies, in order to meet her family's needs. Currently she has a rather large clientele and receives orders for birthdays and family celebrations. Her cookies are well appreciated; sometimes people come from Bénin to place orders. She has even recruited 2 new people to help her in her business. To increase her supply, she is requesting a loan from WAGES to purchase 15 sacks of wheat flour, 5 sacs of granulated sugar, and 2 cups of margarine.
