Ten years ago Tchilalo began the retail commerce of yams that she stores in bags. Yams are widely used in Togolese cooking for the preparation of fufu.

She gets her supplies from Bassar, a town in the interior of the country, which gives her large profit margins when selling cereals. She wants to buy 10 bags of yams to increase her stock. This is why she is requesting a loan from WAGES.
