Afiwavi Anastasie's story

This lady is 37 years old, and is married with one child. In order to contribute to her family's expenses, she sells jewelery, bags, pagnes [traditional, sarong-like wraparounds], kitchenware and bowls.

She gets her supplies from the wholesalers at the large market in Lomé. She then sells her goods from a stall across from the Goethe-Institut in Lomé. The loan requested will help purchase 16 pieces of high-quality pagne in order to attract more clients.
