A loan of $1,175 helped purchase and sale of dishes and kitchen utensils.


Dégbémion's story

Mrs. Dégbémion T. is married and was born February 2, 1981 in Aného where she runs a small business selling dishes and kitchen utensils. She is the one who supports her household through her activities. A lack of financial means has compelled her to buy dishes and utensils from retailers and sell them in neighborhoods and at the big market in her region. This activity that does not guarantee a sufficient income.

She is requesting a loan in order to purchase products in bulk – which will reduce purchasing expenses – and to sell them as retail in her region. This will allow her to satisfy market demand and to earn a more consistent income to provide for her family.
