Aïsseta's story

Mme Aïsseta is married and the mother of 3 children, aged between 20 and 3. 2 of the children go to school, and she is responsible for 4 people.

For the last 20 years, she has been selling "pagnes" (colorful African cloth). She obtains her supplies in Lomé, Togo. Her customers are guests of the Hotel Splendide and passers-by, as she is a walking salesperson.

With the money from the loan, she wants to buy 1 bale of "pagnes." The profit will be used to increase her activity. She also has the goal of opening a large store and educating her children, for a better future.
