Yvonne Andréa Akouvi
This woman sells groceries to earn a living. She has been in this business since 2001, in her house in the Bè-kpota district in Lomé. This business allows her to help her husband pay the school fees for their two children. Presently, she has studied her market and feels that she can go into selling African "waxcloth" and costume jewelry as well. For that reason she is requesting a loan from WAGES to buy 25 lengths of "waxcloth" (Hollandais brand), 20 lengths (Hitarget brand), and 15 lengths of Soso brand, as well as some good quality costume jewelry. She is counting on her experience and the demand of her clientele to make this loan pay off.
