Akouwah's story

Ms. Akouwah is married to a manager of a private company in Lomé; the couple has one child. Thanks to her husband’s help, this lady opened a restaurant in the Agoè FIR district in Lomé. The restaurant opened in 2007 and is patronized very much by soldiers, golfers, and many other visitors. It’s located a few meters from a Golf Club course that is popular with foreign tourists. That is to say, it’s a widely-recognized restaurant, renowned, and much appreciated.

At present, she needs to establish a new inventory. For this reason, she’s requesting a WAGES loan to buy 10 cases of the alcoholic drink Guiness, 10 cases of the alcoholic drink Lager, 10 cases of soft drinks, 5 boxes of tomatoes, 10 boxes of spaghetti, 5 sacks of rice, and some carrots and chili peppers.
