Comfort
Mrs. Comfort D. was born on January 4, 1960 in Agbétiko, Bas Mono, in the south of Togo. A widow for some years now, she is raising her 7 children alone, supporting the family thanks to the sale of "akassa" balls called "Akpan". They are made of maize porridge and are much appreciated in her area. Presently, Mrs. D. is plagued by a lack of raw materials that is causing her sales to drop. She is requesting a loan to make her little business viable by stocking up on maize and building a shed that she can sell out of. The profit from her business allows her to improve her family's living conditions and ensure that her children will be educated.

Mme Comfort D. est née le 04 Janvier 1960 à Agbétiko dans le Bas Mono au sud du Togo. Veuve depuis quelques années, elle est seule à s’occuper de ses sept (07) enfants grâce à la vente des boules d’Akassa appelées «Akpan». C’est une pâte à base de mais très appréciée. Actuellement Mme D. est confrontée à une mévente qui ralenti son chiffre d’affaires. Elle sollicite un financement pour rentabiliser son commerce par le stockage du mais et la construction d’un hangar sous lequel elle va vendre. Les profits tirés de son commerce lui permettront d’améliorer les conditions de vie de sa famille et d’assurer l’éducation des enfants.
