A loan of $2,100 helped a member to buy nine pieces of "pagne" fabric.

Swaa Mawupenusin Group's story

Since 2004 Angèle has been getting supplies of "pagne" (brightly colored fabric) from the Grand Market and reselling them in the Novissi and Kodomé districts of Lomé. She lives in Kodomé with her husband and two children. She gets fresh supplies twice a month and sells from Monday to Saturday, from eight o'clock in the morning to six in the evening. She is the leader of the Swaa Mawupenusin group and is self-disciplined with a capacity for listening. Her capabilities have allowed her to build up a loyal customer base and make a significant daily income.

Having developed some diversification of her products, Angèle would now like to add nine pieces of "pagne" fabric to her stock with the loan she is requesting. The other members of the group sell a variety of products such as corn, hair extensions, basic commodities, fruits and others. Their aim is to build up their stock by buying further products.

In this group: Yidi Angele, Dope, Afiavi Josephine, Amavi, Mawulawoè, Amivi, Ayawovi Amenyona, Ama Enyonam, Eya Delahiawo, Augustine
