A loan of $600 helped to buy general food products.


Akouwa's story

Akouwa is asking for her first loan through WAGES so she can buy some general food products. She displays her array of goods [to sell]. She generally procures them from the Grand Market of Lome. She has been doing this since 1998.

Akouma is married to a sailor and lives with him and their five children in Lome. The oldest child is 26 years old and the youngest is 12 years old. Two of the children have been to school. Akouwa is 45 years old.

In the future, she would like to reinvest in her business and improve the living conditions of her family.
