Ablavi Agathe's story

Ablavi is a married woman of 53 years who has one child. She sells cooking ingredients, which she stocks up on twice a month at the marketplace and resells from home.

In order to increase her clientele, Ablavi plans to use this loan to purchase baskets of peppers, tomatoes, and flour made from both maize and manioc.

Ablavi's goal is to increase her clientele and also to one day achieve financial autonomy.
