Dziffa's story

Mrs. Dzifa is a 32 years old. She has two children who are 14 and 4 years old, the older is in school. She is employed by a local company, but out of conern for her children's future and to make ends meet, she also started selling fabric since 2010. She buys her merchandise in Lome and sells from her home. This first loan will help her to buy inventory and to better meet her family's needs. She would like to strengthen the business and ensure the education and well-being of her children. Her biggest challenge is the delay in being paid.
