Edoh A. was born in Kouvé (in Yoto prefecture) in 1971. She is a very active woman, is married, and has three school-age children. She owns a sugar cane field that she is busy with each day doing farm work. A very ambitious woman, she has set a goal for herself: to one day be the first woman producer of sugar cane in her area. Yet the tools she uses are still rudimentary. And so she is requesting a loan of $550 to buy modern tools and to increase her production. This will allow her to boost her living standards and her family’s too.
