Massan's story

Massan sells cereal grains (sorghum, millet and corn, etc.), a business that she began in 1993. Wanting to increase her inventory to improve sales and satisfy the customer demand, she has asked for her first loan in order to purchase more grain. Massan is married to a bricklayer, and they have one child. The family lives in Agoe, a suburb to the north of Lomé, the capital of Togo.
