Akossiwa is married to a master bricklayer. She is 41 years old and has three children who all attend school. Her oldest child is 12 and the youngest is 4.
In order to help her husband, she has been selling general food products in a shop, since 2002. Her customers come from all walks of life.
Akossiwa buys her supplies in Lomé. She sometimes has to face competition on the market; this is why she is requesting a second loan from our institution. This new loan will help her to buy staple food products such as rice, vegetable oil, sugar and milk.
With the additional profits that she will make, she would like to expand her activity, while taking care of her family.
Akossiwa est mariée à un maitre maçon. Elle a 41ans et a 03 enfants tous scolarisés. Le premier a 12ans et le dernier 04ans. Pour prêter main forte à son conjoint, elle vend depuis 2002 des produits d’alimentation générale à toutes personnes dans une boutique. Son approvisionnement se fait à Lomé et elle rencontre par moment de la concurrence sur le marché. Afin de pallier à ce problème elle sollicite un second crédit dans notre institution pour acheter des produits de premières nécessités (riz, huile végétale, sucre, lait). Avec les profits supplémentaires, elle souhaite agrandir son activité tout en prenant soin de sa famille.
