She is over 33 years old and married to Norbert Agbloba, who is employed as a time-keeper by a longshoring company. She has four children, including Euloge, the eldest, who is in the 8th grade. Ms. Odette Y. is a retailer of cassava flour, corn, and vegetable oil. She has been in this business for fifteen years. She buys her merchandise wholesale and sells it retail, on credit, collecting payment every two weeks or so. To strengthen her business, she is thinking about adding millet to her sales. To pursue this path, she is requesting this third loan of 100,000 francs CFA.
