Akossiwa's story

Akossiwa lives with her husband, a mechanic, and their children in Lomé. To help her husband with the household expenses, she began by selling general grocery products in a shop. This is the business she is presently in. She is asking for her second loan from WAGES to buy sacks of rice, cartons of tomatoes, tins of vegetable oil, and other products to sell in order to make a profit. With the extra profit, she would like to build a house to rent out, expand her shop in order to become a wholesaler, and improve living conditions for the family. She is 27 years old.
