Affiwa Akpé
Ms. Affiwa Akpé A., age 52, is married to Mr. Richard TSOKONA, who is a taxi driver. They have three children. Ms. A.'s main business is commerce in fabrics at the grand marketplace in Lomé. She began in this business and has been in it since 1982. Her first loan of 450,000 francs CFA, which she has by the way paid off promptly, enabled her to avoid inventory shortages up until now. Given the size of her current customer base, she is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs CFA to buy 50 roles of new fabrics to meet customer demand better. With the income from this business, she helps her husband with family expenses.

Affiwa Akpé a pour activité principale l’achat et vente de tissus au grand marché de Lomé. Elle a commencé par exercer cette activité depuis 1982. Son premier crédit d’une valeur de 450.000FCFA qu’elle a d’ailleurs promptement remboursé lui a permis de ne plus avoir une rupture de stock jusqu’à ce jour.
Compte tenu de l’importance de sa clientèle actuelle, elle sollicite un emprunt d’une valeur de 500.000FCFA pour acheter 50 rouleaux de nouveaux tissus pour mieux répondre à la demande de ses clients. Avec le revenu de cette activité elle aide son mari dans les dépenses familiales.
