Ama B. is 43 years old, married, and the mother of five. She is a food retailer in the marketplace in Adéta, a village located about 150 km from Lomé, the Togolese capital. With this loan, her third from FECECAV, Ama wishes to buy sacks of corn and to stock up on them in order to limit repeated trips, since stocking up is accomplished on farms. The profits she will earn from her business will enable her to provide for her children and to improve their living conditions.
