Akouvi is a hairdresser. She also resells beauty products such as hair extensions. Her husband works at the harbor and she struggles to provide enough food to her 3-year-old child. Her goal is to open her own hairdressing shop and to buy some beauty products, in order to boost her business and increase her revenues. She hopes that a loan will help her to reach her goal, so that she will enjoy a standard of living better suited to her child's educational needs.
Akouvi est coiffeuse et revendeuse de produits de beauté/mèches de cheveux. Avec son mari travaillant au port, elle peine à garantir une nourriture suffisante pour son enfant de trois ans. Pour renforcer son activité et ses revenus, elle a pour projet d’ouvrir son propre magasin de coiffure et acheter des marchandises. Si un prêt lui permet de faire cela, elle pourrait disposer d’un niveau de vie plus adapté à l’éducation de son enfant.
