A loan of $1,850 helped a member to buy two sacks of corn.

Novissi Group's story

Amevi is 35 years old, married and the mother of two. She is the leader of the Novissi group from the Adidogomé neighbourhood, which is made up of 22 women.

Amevi is a dynamic person who turns corn into a local dish known as "ablo"; this takes her three hours. She has been in business for more than 10 years and has many customers from different parts of Lomé.

Amevi buys her corn at her local market once a week. This loan will help her buy two sacks of corn, enabling her to reduce her supply frequency and receive a discount on her purchases. The other group members also run small businesses.

In this group: Amevi, Adzo Celestine, Amah Mledavi, Akokoè, Adjo, Ama, Kayi Ami, Adzo Nevame, Abla, Mawussi, Segnon, Akoessiba, Efoua, Loky, Minpakpe, Kafui Ama, Jonshi, Badanyaki, Chakira, Ablawavi Odile
