Ayawa's story

Ayawa, aged 43, is the mother of family in the BE district in downtown Lomé, Togo. With four children to support, she has also been a merchant since 1992 selling grocery items. She has some difficulties responding to the different needs of her significant and diversified customer base, since she lacks an adequate inventory.

After having attended a training meeting on managing inventory, she is requesting a loan to increase her inventory of corn, rice, sugar, and more. The profit from her business will enable her to help out her husband in covering household expenses.
