Akouvi's story

Mme Akouvi is 30. She buys and sells staple goods (rice, sugar, vegetable oil), lengths of African print cloth and damask cloth. Her husband is a tailor and they are raising one child. She has been in this business since 2007 and it really suits her. She is on her first loan, and this money will permit her to buy merchandise to get her little business going better. She buys her supplies in Lomé and sells out of her house to all comers.
