Madame A. Yawa, born December 31st, 1976 in Gapé is married and the mother of three children. A seamstress by training, she has her own workshop with apprentices. Her first loan of $200 allowed her to buy a sewing machine to improve the quality of her work. Abandoned by her husband, she is alone in providing for her children. She has gained a good reputation in her neighborhood through dynamism and dedication to her work.

Current customer demand requires Yawa to renovate her sewing workshop and to buy new equipment. Therefore she is seeking a new loan of $950 which will allow her to buy two additional sewing machines and materials to make clothing. Completing this project will allow her to increase her income, which she will put toward improving the living conditions of her children.
