A1101315 Group's story

Born in 1985, Madam Akouavi is a hairdresser by profession. Single, she has 2 dependent children of whom 1 goes to school. She started her business in 2011 and practices her business in Aného (located about 50km from the town of Lomé) and gets her supplies in Lomé. She is requesting her first loan from WAGES to buy working materials. The profits will help her to buy more merchandise in order to expand her business. She also hopes to ensure the health and the schooling of her children. Madam Akouavi is part of a group made up of men and women, of which she is the leader. They are all in business (selling planks, doughnuts, general foodstuffs...). Like their leader, they also hope to ensure a good future for their children while making their businesses sustainable.

In this group: Akouavi, Koffi, Ayélé, Akossiwa, Vienyinu, Anoko, Akouvi
