A loan of $1,050 helped to buy shoes for resale.


Akossiwa's story

Akossiwa is a humble woman, 36 years of age, and the mother of two children. She lives in the city of Lomé and sells shoes. She started this business eleven years ago at the Hédzranawoé market. She quickly noticed that this business earned her an excellent income. Her husband works in a warehouse.

Akossiwa is requesting this loan to buy shoes. Akossiwa is happy for the loan she has been granted. Thanks to this loan, she will have more merchandise in stock and will be able to increase her income. One of her main objectives is to improve the food self-sufficiency of her family.
