A loan of $675 helped to buy corn and fish to prepare fermented corn dough.


Adakou's story

Adakou D. has specialized in the sale of fermented dough commonly called "kom". Her business is located in the Kpogan neighborhood in Lomé. She has been active in this trade since 1992, which allows her to have the financial means to help her husband, who is a photographer, to provide for their two children. She usually sells her dough to a diversified clientele. Currently her business is very profitable. So as to have a sufficient inventory to continue her activity, Adakou applies to WAGES for a loan to buy 17 bags of corn and 10 baskets of fish.
