Akpedze has worked as a retailer since 2004. She sells fabric and hosiery to all types of customers at her house. She buys her products in Lomé. She works by herself. At the moment, her main difficulty is a shortage in her stock of goods.

In the coming years, Akpedze would like to open a shop. She says that with the profits, she intends to provide for her family.
