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.

Madame A. Akossiwa est née en 1970 à Djagblé où elle a grandi. Mère aujourd’hui de six (06) enfants, elle a appris la boulangerie, métier qu’elle exerce dans son quartier et qui lui procure l’essentiel de son revenu. Mariée, elle est obligée de se débattre au quotidien pour faire face aux besoins de ses enfants et surtout pour garantir leur avenir. Actuellement, elle connaît des difficultés liées à l’augmentation du prix de la farine de blé sur le marché ; ce qui a fait chuter sensiblement sa production.
Pour remédier à ce problème qui pèse sur les conditions de vie de sa famille, Madame A. sollicite donc un financement pour stocker la farine de blé et le bois afin d’éviter des moments de rupture et accroître ses revenus.
