A loan of $1,200 helped to buy frozen food products.

Akouavi's story

Akouavi is a young woman of 32 years. She has a husband who is a freight forwarder. She also has some children. To help her husband with the household expenses, she resells frozen food products that she procures from wholesalers.

This second loan that she is asking for will help her buy more product.

The profit earned from the sales will help her expand her market and improve the living conditions of her family.
