A loan of $400 helped to buy traditional cloth.

Akoko Abla's story

A resident of Bé-Kpota (a district not far from the city), Abla is a mother of one child. She has been selling pagnes (colorful West African cloth) since 1987 by buying at the Grand Market of Lomé and selling at the market of Akodesséwa.

Abla is a very active woman who knows how to struggle to ensure her child will have a better future, to have her own plot of land for building a house, and to see her business prosper. For these aims, she would like to obtain this initial loan in order to buy pagne cloth for resale, so as to make a profit.
