Mrs. Akossiwa A. was born in 1978 in Abidjan. Coming from a poor family, she has faced every type of hardship in the world during her life. Due to a lack of means, she has neither schooling nor professional training. She is married to a taxi driver, with whom she has three (3) children. Her main occupation is the sale of foodstuffs (rice, beans, spaghetti). Despite these difficulties, she has come to manage her business with rigor and was able to repay her previous loans. The current loan she is asking for will serve to buy bags of rice, beans, and other goods to strengthen her business and increase profits in order to be able to meet the needs of her family.
