Lébéné
Mrs. Lébéné K. is a 35 year-old woman, born in Tsévié. A married mother of four (04) children, her husband is a teacher who is unemployed most of the time. Because of this situation, he cannot take care of the family, and thus the responsibility of taking care of the household belogs to Mrs. Lébéné K.. Illiterate, she was a housewife in Lomé for five years before becoming a smoked fish saleswoman at the Gapé Central market.

Despite her difficult life, she has never ceased to fight for the happiness of her children. A moral and conciencous woman, she successfully refunded the first loan. Currently, she is asking for a second credit of $800 to build her smoked fish business. She thus hopes to be able to reduce her and her family's sufferings.
