A loan of $1,225 helped to buy corn.


Akouvi's story

Akouvi is married to a managing director and is the mother of three children who are 11, 9 and 7 years old. All of her children attend school.

In order to help her husband, Akouvi sells corn in a store. She stocks up in Lomé and in remote towns. She is requesting her second loan from WAGES so that she can better respond to her customers needs. She will buy sacks of corn which she will then re-sell and make profit from. She plans to use her profits to open another store and guarantee her family a better future. It should be made clear that Akouvi is 37 years old and started her business in 2008.
