Amélé is a 34-year old woman. She is married to a house painter. She has five children, three of whom are in school. The oldest is 21 years old, and the youngest four years old.
Amélé has been working as a vendor since 1992. She sells yams to the public at large out of her home and in town. She stocks up in Lomé. She works by herself. At present, her main challenge is low stock.
