Mrs. Akoko A. was born in Lomé on April 22, 1976. She is married and presently has two children. Since she lacked support, she did not continue her studies. She began selling generic products, and since 1998 groceries. Her business is now doing wonderfully well. She received a first loan which allowed her to diversify the range of products she offers.

This made her clientele grow, and she is requesting this second loan to bolster her inventory by the purchase of 6 sacks of rice, 4 tins of oil, and 6 cases of generic products.

Madame A. Akoko est née à Lomé le 22 avril 1976. Elle s’est mariée et a actuellement deux enfants. Par manque de support elle n’a pas pu faire de grandes études. Elle s’est alors lancée dans le commerce de produits génériques, et d’alimentation générale depuis 1998. Son commerce aujourd’hui marche a merveille. Elle avait eu un premier prêt qui lui a permis de varier la gamme de ses produits.

Cette variation a fait accroître sa clientèle et elle sollicite ce deuxième prêt pour gonfler son stock par l’achat de 6 sacs de riz, 4 bidons d’huile et 6 cartons de produits génériques.
