Ablavi's story

Ablavi is 34 years old and lives with her children in Lomé. In order to provide a good education for her children, she resells "pagne" cloth (the traditional colorful cloth of western Africa) and food products in a shop. She began the business in 2008 and she is requesting her second loan to be able to purchase more merchandise. The profit she earns will help her provide for the basic needs of her family.
