Akossiwa
A married mother of six children, Ms. Akossiwa A. is an energetic and courageous woman. Her husband, a carpenter by trade, has difficulty contributing to the family's income. In addition to her children, Ms. A. also takes care of two girls who are her apprentices. She must divide her time between her family and her mini restaurant where she sells “foufou” (mashed yams) with various sauces, but her years of experience help her to manage the situation. Despite her limited education, she is able to manage her business well.



Her mini restaurant has become a very popular place for everyone in her town, but she is no longer able to meet such high demand. She is requesting a loan of $800 to remodel her restaurant and to buy a supply of yams and other items. This will allow her to become financially independent and to meet her family's basic needs.

Mariée et mère de six (6) enfants, Madame A. Akossiwa est une femme dynamique et courageuse. Son mari, menuisier de profession contribue difficilement aux charges du ménage. En plus de ses enfants, Madame A. a en charge deux (2) filles en apprentissage. Partagée entre son mini restaurant où elle vend du foufou (ignames pilées) avec de diverses sauces et sa famille, elle possède une expérience qui lui permet de mieux contrôler la situation. Malgré son niveau d’études très bas, elle cerne correctement la gestion de ses activités.



Son mini restaurant est devenu un lieu très fréquenté par tous les habitants de sa localité, ce qui fait qu’elle n’arrive plus à être à la hauteur de la demande. Elle sollicite un soutien financier de $800 pour le réaménagement de son restaurant, s’approvisionner en ignames et autres. Ceci lui permettra d’acquérir une autonomie financière et subvenir aux besoins les plus élémentaires de la famille.
