Akouvi's story

Akouvi is a 45 year old woman. She is married to a driver and has 2 children, 1 of whom is in school. The elder is 22 and the younger 17 years old. Akouvi has worked as a fruit and snack seller since 1998. She works on her own, at the front of a bar - and she buys her raw materials in Lomé. Akouvi is seeking her first loan with WAGES in order to buy fruit, flour, oil and sugar for making snacks. She wants to invest in her business, and to have a happy family.
