Têko
Born in Aklakou in 1968, Mr. F. Teko is married and the father of five children. His wife has a small-business where she sells foodstuffs to local school establishments. This activity means that his wife is not able to help with the housework. A professional driver, Mr. F. takes his passengers from Aklakou, his town, to Lome, the capital city, in his taxi whose motor has fallen into disrepair. Educated all the way to Secondary School, Mr. Teko has 15 years experience in his profession. In order for him to re-launch his business, he needs a good quality car. This is why he is asking for a loan of $1,200.00, to purchase a new motor and to replace certain parts. With these repairs, he and his family can re-find the joy of life and to meet their nutritional, schooling and sanitary needs.

Né à Aklakou en 1968, Monsieur F. Têko est marié et père de cinq enfants. Sa femme est une petite commerçante qui vend des denrées alimentaires dans des établissements scolaires de son milieu. Cette activité ne permet pas à cette dernière d’aider Mr. FOOLY Têko dans les charges du ménage. Chauffeur de profession, il fait aujourd’hui le transport des passagers entre Aklakou son village et Lomé la capitale du pays avec son taxi dont le moteur est totalement usé. Instruit de niveau secondaire, Mr. Têko a une quinzaine d’année d’expérience dans son métier. Aujourd’hui, pour relancer son activité, il lui faut une voiture de bonne qualité. C’est pour cela qu’il sollicite ce crédit de $1200 pour acheter un nouveau moteur et pour changer certaines pièces. Ainsi, lui et sa famille pourront retrouver goût à la vie et faire face aux besoins alimentaires, scolaires et en soins de santé de la famille..
