Mme. Zouréhatou M. was born in Kétao, a small village in the north of Togo. She is unmarried and has one dependent child. Since 1998, her occupation has been the purchase of yam tubers in villages where they are grown, and their sale at a market in Lomé. Without substantial funds, she must make frequent trips to restock, increasing her expenses. Therefore, she requests this, her first loan, to increase her stock by 100 yam tubers.

Translated from French by Jonah Durning-Hammond, Kiva Volunteer.

Célibataire avec un enfant à la charge, madame M. Zouréhatou est née à Kétao, un petit village situé au nord du TOGO. Depuis 1998 elle exerce une activité qui consiste en l’achat des tubercules d’igname dans les villages où se pratique la culture de ces denrées, et à leur vente dans un marché de la ville de Lomé. N’ayant pas de capital assez consistant elle est obligée de faire de fréquent voyage pour se ravitailler ce qui augmente ses charges.
Elle sollicite donc ce premier crédit pour augmenter son stock de 100 tubercules d’igname.
