Dibamaka Akouvi's story

Akouvi is a 31-year-old woman. She is married to a planner-architect. She has three children, of whom two are in school. The first-born is 9 years old, and the last is 3.

Akouvi has been working as a retailer of beverages from the Brasserie du Bénin since 2005. She serves her customers out of her house. She has requested her third loan cycle from WAGES in order to buy some cases of beverages. She wants to save money to expand her business.

In the next few years, Akouvi would like to have another beverages outlet. With the profits, she says she expects to make sure her children are educated in the best schools in the region.
