Bibata's story

Mrs. Bibata K. was born in 1979 in Kouloundè in the Tchaoudjo prefecture in the north of Togo. She is married and the mother of two children. Her principal business is sewing. In 2003, she opened her workshop that she calls « couture lumière » (Sewing Light) in the Agoè area. She does not have the support of her husband and she also does not have all the necessary equipment for her trade.



This first loan that she is requesting will allow her to buy a special embroidery-sewing machine that will cost her 300,000F CFA.
