Yawa Kafui
Yawa Kafui A. was born on September 3, 1970 in Lomé. Married and the mother of two children, she has been selling canned goods, sacks of rice, and drums of vegetable oil since 2005 in her shop that she has named ETS AKS ALBATROS. Her first loan of 350,000 francs CFA enable her to stock up enough inventory to avoid incessant round-trips to the Grand Market in Lomé. And it also enables her to back away from supplier loans, which don't allow her to earn enough. In addition, the volume of customer traffic is now better, and her customer base has grown to an adequate level. With regard to sales growth and to customer needs, she is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs CFA to buy twelve 25-kg sacks of rice and eight cartons of canned goods in order to grow her revenue, which would allow her to help with family expenses.

Madame A. Yawa Kafui est née le 03 Septembre 1970 à Lomé. Mariée et mère de 02 enfants, elle est revendeuse des boites de conserve, des sacs de riz et des bidons d’huile végétale depuis 2005 dans sa boutique qu'elle a dénommée ETS AKS ALBATROS.
Son premier crédit d’un montant de 350.000FCFA lui a permis de s’approvisionner en quantité suffisante pour éviter de faire d’incessants allers-retours vers le Grand Marché de Lomé et de se soustraire du crédit fournisseur qui ne lui permet pas de gagner suffisamment. De plus, son achalandage a été meilleur et la clientèle est devenue suffisante.
Suite à l’accroissement de la vente et aux besoins de la clientèle, elle sollicite un crédit de 500.000FCFA pour acheter 12 sacs de riz de 25Kg et 8 cartons de boîtes de conserve afin d'accroître son revenu qui lui permet de participer aux dépenses de la famille.
