Dovi has fully repaid her loan of £1128.21
Dovi Adoufa makes a living from selling basic grains in the market. She is 38 and married with four children. They are aged between 7-18 and all are still in full-time education. She lives in the district of John Cope Anié in Atakpame in central Togo. She has had this particular business since 1998, previously she worked as a seamstress but felt that she did not earn enough for her work. She buys cereals (typically maize, millet and beans) from wholesale suppliers in Oke Gilitto and re-sells in the Anié market. She employs two full-time staff. One of Dovi’s biggest problems is the difficulty and cost of transporting the grains. She hopes to earn enough income eventually to buy her own vehicle. She requested her first ever loan from the microfinance organisation WAGES of 800,000 West African francs in order to buy 20 bags of maize at a cost of 527,000 francs, spend 173,000 on millet and 100,000 on beans. She intends to repay the loan over 12 months.
