Madame Essi K. is 41 years old and lives in her birthplace, Lome, Togo. She sells 'argile', a kind of clay used for construction. Madame K. purchases her merchandise across the border in Ghana to sell near her home in Lome. She has requested a loan of 500,000 CFA in order to purchase 50 more sacks of the clay. She is the mother and sole caregiver of two children. This loan will hopefully provide her with a more stable and increased income in order to provide for the needs of her family.
