Jean
Born on Dec. 12, 1975 in Lomé, Gulf Prefecture, Togo, Mr. Jean A. stopped after primary school and began an apprenticeship. Married and father of two children, he is a trained carpenter and now has his own shop. He has acquired considerable experience which brings in lots of customers. However, Mr. A. has difficulty exercising his trade because he does not have enough modern tools. The tools he has are old and worn, which makes his work slow and difficult. For this reason, he is asking for a loan of US$ 400 to purchase better tools. Mr. A. is currently living in Lomé in the Tokoin Ramco district where his workshop is located; he works together with Mr. Michel Balo.

Né le 12 décembre 1975 à Lomé dans la préfecture du Golfe, monsieur A. Jean a arrêté ses études au cours primaire et s’est lancé dans l’apprentissage. Marié et père de deux (02) enfants, il est menuisier de formation et aujourd’hui il détient son propre atelier. Il a acquis une expérience redoutable dans son métier, ce qui fait augmenter sa clientèle. Mais monsieur A. Jean rencontre certaines difficultés, il ne dispose pas assez d’outils d’importance capitale. Ceux qui sont actuellement à sa disposition sont vétustes, ce qui rend le travail lent et pénible. Pour cela, il sollicite un financement de $ 400 pour renforcer son équipement de travail. Mr A. Jean réside actuellement à Lomé dans le quartier Tokoin Ramco où se trouve également son atelier dans lequel il travaille en association avec Mr BALO Michel.
