Maman Filicité
Mrs. D., 24, married and mother of 3 children, was born in Davié and now lives on the outskirts of the city of Lomé. A seamstress by trade, she is the owner of a workshop called “COUTURE DAME FELICITE”. She is specialized in sewing women’s fashions so she has an essentially female clientele. Since 2005 she has added to her business the sale of costume jewelry for women. But Mrs. D. did not stop there. She also sells charcoal since she is married to a chauffeur who brings back charcoal that she warehouses and sells in small quantities.

This first loan will allow her to purchase 40 sacks of charcoal and some jewelry to expand her inventory.
