A loan of $850 helped to purchase corn to make "Kom.".


Kpoliawoè's story

Born in 1975 in Ghana, Madame Kpoliawoe A. is married and other of five children. Along with her agricultural activities, she also sells "Kom" ( a food made with a corn base) that is known by the locals as a good addition to meals. Madame A. loves her work and is quite an expert in this culinary art, and she quickly gained the trust and business of all the neighbors. At present, she is asking for a loan of $850.00 which will allow her to stock corn and garantee her sales of "Kom." Also, she wishes to expand her business in order to improve the living conditions of her family.

Née en 1975 au Ghana, Madame Kpoliawoè A. est mariée et mère de cinq (05) enfants. En plus de ses activités agricoles, elle vend du « Kom » (un aliment à base du maïs) qui est très apprécié par la population de sa localité pour mieux contribuer aux dépenses du foyer. Aimant bien son activité, très accueillante et maîtrisant bien l’art culinaire, elle a vite gagné la confiance de tous les habitants.

A présent elle sollicite un crédit de $850 qui servira à faire un stock de maïs afin de garantir sa vente de « Kom ». Ainsi, pense t-elle rentabiliser plus ses activités pour contribuer à l’amélioration des conditions de vie de la famille.
