Afi
Mrs. Afi T. was born on October 3rd, 1964 in Badja, in the county of Zio. She is married, and the mother of three children. In 1994, she opened a roadside cafe in the Agoè neighborhood. She buys pigs from the surrounding villages, and then cooks, and sells delicious pork dishes. The pork is usually breaded with a casava-based flour, and prepared with sauce. With her first loan, which she has fully repaid, she was able to move locations to be closer to the Agoè marketplace, as well as improve her recipes. With her current loan, she will be able to buy six pigs to start off her business at the new location.

Madame T. Afi est née le 03 octobre 1964 à Badja dans la préfecture de Zio. Elle est mariée et mère de trois (3) enfants. En 1994, elle a ouvert une charcuterie dans le quartier d’Agoè. Elle achète les porcs dans les villages environnant, procède à la cuisson et les vend. Généralement ce repas s’accompagne avec la farine de manioc préparée avec la sauce.
Le premier crédit qu’elle avait pris et terminé de rembourser lui a permis de quitter le lieu où elle vendait auparavant pour s’approcher du marché d’Agoè et améliorer ses recettes.
Le crédit qu’elle sollicite actuellement lui permet d’acheter six (6) porcs pour poursuivre sa restauration.
