Kekeli Group's story

Adjowa is 40 years old, married, and has three children under her care. She lives in Lome, a neighborhood in Agoe, where she manages the Kekeli group. Between 2008 and 2012, she worked making cold porcelain, but since 2013, Adjowa has started selling BT and Hitarget pagnes [types of bright, colorful fabric] which she gets from the Lome Grand Market.

The other group members sell cereals, shoes, fruits, kitchen utensils, and vegetables, which they procure from certain markets in Agoe and at the Lome Grand Market. They are each seeking a loan to strengthen their businesses in order to reach more customers.
