Essowereou Group's story

This is a group of men and women, of which Kouméalo is the representative. She is married to a farmer and they have 4 children of whom only 1 goes to school. Kouméalo as for herself is 47 years old. They are in business selling corn.

During this period when corn is abundant, this group is requesting this second loan to buy and stock up in merchandise (corn) to be able to sell corn during the time of shortages. It should be specified that she started her business in 1998.

With the profits she would like to school her child, become a great businesswoman and why not sell products in foreign countries. The other members of the group hope that with the profits, they can ensure good living conditions for their families.

In this group: Kouméalo, Mayam, Kekemba, Ayaovi, Koudjoukalo, Mazalo, Awekam, Ebelakiwè, Yaovi, Afoua
