The mother of two children, aged 18 and 15, Apotcho is a married woman and a clothier by trade. At the same time, she has a business selling 'pagnes' (the colorful cloth of western Africa) and sewing supplies. With five apprentices in her workshop, she is requesting a second loan to purchase some merchandise to resell to customers. For the future, she would like to increase her inventory of sewing supplies and to meet the needs of her family. She is 44 years old and her husband is a manager at a beverages warehouse.
