Akou Jeannette's story

Akou is married. She is 36 and she sells cereals and condiments that she orders once a month at the big markets in the rural zones and she returns home to sell them in her district. She would like to increase the number of customers and her income. So, she requests a loan to buy more sacks of corn, of beans and of rice. She plans to make more income by increasing her sales to contribute to the household expenses.
