A loan of $600 helped purchase of coconuts and sale of their meat.


Akouavi's story

Mrs. Akouavi A., 45, has been selling coconut meat for more than 15 years. She is a widow raising 5 children. Today, the needs of her little household never cease to grow greater whereas her purchasing power does not progress at that same rhythm.



With a view to growing her income so as to better the living conditions of the various members of her family, Mrs. Akouavi A. is proposing to reinforce her business so as to get the maximum benefit from it. Unfortunately, she does not have her own savings. For that reason, she is requesting a loan to serve as complementary funds in order to make her business more lucrative.
