Mrs. Kossiwa Nicole A. was born in Lomé on 14 January 1970. She is married and has four children. To meet the needs of her family, she started a business selling pagne cloth and jewelry. She buys pagne cloth and jewelry at wholesale prices at the grand market in Lomé, and re-sells them in the district where she lives, Adidogomé.
Her clientele has grown, and to meet this increasing demand, she is asking for her first loan in order to enlarge her stock with 50 sets of pagne cloth and 10 sets of jewelry.
