Amavi Mawuéna
Amavi Mawuena A. is married and the mother of four. She was born on March 25, 1978, in Notsè, a city located 100 km from Lomé. She has been in the business of selling shoes and bags (purses, totes, etc.) since 2005 in the Adawlato marketplace where she displays them for sale. In the beginning, she only sold bags for women. But she noticed that her customers not only wanted bags but also shoes. She therefore decided to include commerce in shoes, which she started by using her first loan of 500,000 francs CFA. Very quickly, she sold out before her loan was due because of the vitality of her business. At present, she is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs CFA for 50 pairs of women's shoes and 5 dozen bags. The loan will increase her income in order to cover family expenses better.
