Akouavi's story

Mrs. Akouavi is 58 years old and lives in Attiegou. She is a widow with three dependent children. She started her business six years ago, and specializes in the sale of African dresses and cereals. Mrs. Akouavi gets her supplies inside the country and in Lome, and retails on the market of Akodessewa. Even though she takes care of her children by herself, she remains energetic and resolute. She wants to request this first loan to purchase African dresses and cereals in order to sell more, make a profit, and be able to see her younger children grow up in good conditions.
