Akouwa Kpatagnon's story

Akouwa is a 34-year old woman, married with children. Her husband is an accountant. She sells traditional "pagnes" fabric, stocking up on Lome. She has been in this business in 2009 and manages it well. This third loan will allow her to buy many additional items in order to grow her customer base. Her hope is to open a store, as she currently works as a street vendor, and provide for a better future for her family.
