A loan of $550 helped to buy cloth, packaging, and manioc fields.


Akouavi's story

A young woman of 32 years, Mrs. Akouavi K. is married and has three (03) children. She lives with her family in the village of Agbanakin (Prefecture of Lacs). Her unemployed husband is unable to meet the household expenses, so she began to make and sell leaven in order to meet the family's needs.

Today, she is asking for a loan of $550, which will allow her to buy clean cloths for drying the leaven, manioc fields, and packaging. This will allow her to professionalize her business and to hire, if possible, a workhand.

Jeune dame de 32 ans, Madame K. Akouavi est mariée et mère de trois (03) enfants. Elle vit avec sa famille dans le village d'Agbanakin (P/des Lacs). Son mari sans activité n'arrive pas à subvenir aux dépenses de la famille, elle s'est lancée dans la fabrication et la vente du levain afin de supporter les charges familliales.

Aujourd'hui, elle solicite une somme de $550 qui va lui permettre d'acheter des toiles propres pour le séchage du levain, d'acheter des champs de manioc et des emballages. Ce qui lui permettra de professionnaliser son activité et d'engager si possible une main d'oeuvrer.
