Born in Lomé, the capital of Togo, Mrs. K. is 31 years old and runs a catering business. Since 2006, she has run this business in the market at Lomé, and so far, she has not obtained any previous loans through the organization WAGES. Currently, this first loan she is asking for will allow her to buy 10 yams and meat. These ingredients are very important in the preparation of local cuisine. The Togolese crush yams to prepare a meal called "fufu," which is eaten with meat sauce. Thus, this loan will be very important for Mrs. K. in helping to sell meals.
