Akouvi Délali
Born on June 24, 1970 in Woamé (a town situated 135 kilometers from Lomé), Mrs. Akouvi Délali, wife of A. E. S., has four children who are all enrolled in school. After having been in the cereals business around 1994, she began to sell lengths of African print cloth and boubous (traditional African clothing) in 2005 in the Hédzranawoé market in Lomé. Ever since she took up this business venture, she has been able to help her husband pay their children's school fees.

The loan that she is presently requesting, her first, will permit her to purchase 10 lengths of GTP African print cloth (a mid-quality brand) so that she can diversify her inventory of various prints.
