A loan of $1,175 helped to stock flour for her bakery.


Akossiwa's story

Ms. Akossiwa A. was born in 1970 in Djagblé where she grew up. A married mother of six, she learned how to bake, which is work that she has been doing in her district and that brings in most of her income. She must struggle each day to cope with the needs of her children and especially to guarantee their future. Currently, she is experiencing difficulties linked to the market price increase of flour, which caused her production to drop noticeably.


To remedy this problem which is heavily affecting her family's living conditions, she is therefore requesting financing for an inventory of flour and firewood in order to prevent inventory shortages and to grow her income.
