Adjovi's story

Adjovi is married to a doctor, and is 32 years of age. She has two children who are 7 and 3 years of age, and only the eldest child is at school. Adjovi works selling “pagnes” [traditional wrap-around cloth] on the street, and her customers live all over the city of Lomé. She has asked for her first loan to buy pagnes, and plans to use the profits to open a store to sell her cloth and to buy a plot of land.
