Grace Divine 1 Group's story

Akou Mawussé is married and the mother of two children. She lives in Adidogomé, a neighborhood of Lomé. She has been selling juices and ice water since 2005 and, with her savings, she was able to start selling eggs, on a retail basis, in 2012. Her adaptability and sociability have allowed her to become the president of the "Grâce divine 1" group.

Eager to meet the needs of her customers, she has been diversifying her activity and started selling wheat flour in 2014. She is now taking a loan to buy three bags of wheat flour.

The other members of the group are also involved in retail, and they sell various products such as yams, food products, "pagnes" (colorful West-African fabrics), sewing thread, eggs, etc.
