Akouvi's story

Akouvi is a hairdresser. She also resells beauty products such as hair extensions. Her husband works at the harbor and she struggles to provide enough food to her 3-year-old child. Her goal is to open her own hairdressing shop and to buy some beauty products, in order to boost her business and increase her revenues. She hopes that a loan will help her to reach her goal, so that she will enjoy a standard of living better suited to her child's educational needs.
