Philomène's story

Philomène A. has been a retailer for over five years selling outfits and ready-to-wear clothing, in Danyi, a village located about 175 km from Lomé, the Togolese capital. Philomène is 42 years old, married, and the mother of four children, three of whom are still in school. For three years now, she has been in this business, which remains her principal source of income. This is why she would like to expand her business by buying much more merchandise, which will increase her sales and therefore her profits in order to meet the needs of her children better.
