A loan of $675 helped purchase of sacks of coal.


Dina's story

Dina A. is 33 years old. She is married and the mother of one child. For three years, she has sold coal wholesale and retail in Apéyémé, a village about 170 kilometers from the Togolese capital of Lomé. With this loan, she hopes to buy new sacks of coal in order to increase the size of her business and meet her clients' needs. The profits she earns in this way will allow her to help meet the financial needs of her household.
