Akossiwa's story

Akossiwa is 45 years old. She is married to an auto parts dealer and has 4 children. Akossiwa has been selling sugar, wheat flour and small plastic bags since 1998. She sells to customers at her local market and gets her supplies in Lomé. She works alone and her main challenge is dealing with the competition at the market.

Akossiwa has requested her 2nd loan from WAGES in order to restock on sugar, wheat flour and small plastic bags, so that she can meet customer demand. She would like to reinvest her profits in her business. In the coming years, Akossiwa would like to see her business prosper and to have a very happy family.
