Akossiwa
Akossiwa A., age 48, is married and has 8 persons to support. For several years, she has dedicated herself to preparing cassava flour, generally called "gari". She is very devoted and has plenty of initiative. Revenues from commerce in gari allow her to provide for her family and to help with running her home. These revenues are not great enough for any investing. Thus, there is a need for working capital to acquire cassava, or entire fields of cassava, in order to increase her gari production. The success of this project will allow her to improve living conditions via an increase in revenues. She is requesting a loan of $800.

Agée de 48 ans, Madame A. Akossiwa est mariée et a en charge huit (8) personnes. Depuis plusieurs années, elle s'est consacrée à la préparation de la farine du manioc communément appelée « gari ». Elle est très dévouée et pleine d'initiatives. La commercialisation du gari lu procure des revenus qui lui permettent de subvenir à ses besoins et de contribuer à la gestion de son ménage. Le revenu obtenu n'est pas aussi consistant pour lui permettre de faire des investissements d'où la nécessité d'un fond de base qui servira à acheter du manioc ou des champs entiers de manioc afin d'accroître sa production de gari.
La réalisation de ce projet lui permettra d'améliorer ses conditions de vie à travers l'augmentation de son revenu monétaire. Elle sollicite un apport financiers de $800.
