Kossiwa's story

Mrs Kossiwa T. was born in Tétékou in 1947. She currently lives in Aného with ten persons she has to support. She's married and her main activity is market gardening. Lacking financial means to purchase seeds, Mrs. T. is seeking a loan to buy seeds to sow during the coming agricultural season. After selling her production, she will use the revenues to improve the living conditions of her family.
