This man learned the trade of a mason, but he can't often find a construction site where he can earn enough to support his wife and two children. For this reason he began, in 2008, to raise and sell pigs in his district, Avépozo, in Lomé. He is well known and gets customers even from Benin, the neighboring country. To buy the feed for his animals, but also to buy a motorcycle for his trips to see his clientele, he is asking WAGES for a loan.

Cet homme a appris le métier de maçon, mais il ne trouve pas souvent de chantier à construire pour subvenir aux besoins de sa femme et de ses 02 enfants. Pour cette raison il s’est lancé en 2008 dans son quartier Avépozo à Lomé dans l’élevage et la vente de porcs. Il est très connu et reçoit des clients venant même du Bénin, le pays voisin. Pour acheter de la nourriture à ses animaux, mais aussi acheter une moto pour ses déplacements vers sa clientèle, il sollicite un crédit de WAGES.
