Ablavi Cécile
From a modest family, Madame Ablavi Cécile A. is a native of Datcha, a village in the prefecture of Ogou, 147 km from Lomé (the capital of Togo). She is married to Monsieur Adolphe Etse who is a teacher. At a very young age, Madame A. became involved in selling cereals in her village. Later, she moved to Agoè, a working-class neighborhood in Lomé. Although she is in Lomé, she still buys her corn, millet and beans in her native village.


This is her first loan and she is requesting it in order to buy eight sacks of corn to sell in the new market in which she has acquired a place.
