A loan of $975 helped to buy palm nuts.

Akouavi's story

Born in 1977 in Agbanakin (in the Lacs prefecture), Madame Akouavi K. is married and has three children. Her husband does not have steady work, so he cannot provide for the family. Madame K. has therefore undertaken to buy palm nuts in the nearby farms and villages, which she then sells in marketplaces in order to pay the family expenses.

She is now requesting a loan that will allow her to stock up with palm nuts in bulk. This will generate more income and allow her to improve her family’s standard of living.
