A loan of $150 helped buy 5 boxes of cookies and 3 boxes of soap.

Madjodé's story

Married with three children, Madjodé lives in the Avénou neighborhood and is 49 years old.

Before starting the food trade business, she operated a general store. But Madjodé lost some of her stock following the seizure of her products by the supervisory authorities of pharmaceutical products. The rest of her stock also disappeared in the fire of their home in 2005.

Concerned about the future of her children, she has changed jobs and is active in the retail sales of cookies and soap. She resupplies at the Main Market of Lomé and exposes her goods in a small renovated shop.

To expand her business and increase its turnover, she is requesting this loan to buy cartons of cookies and soap.
