Judith

Mrs. Judith Q. was born on 5 May 1978 in Lomé. She was unable to continue her studies after the BEPC due to her parents' poverty, which led her to marry very early on. She has two (02) children. Her husband's job, a drink seller, has slowed down considerably, which makes things more difficult for the household. Very quickly, she started selling a maize paste called "Ablo" in the language Ewe. Her modest financial means are insufficient to purchase maize, wood, and sugar regularly. Thus, she is asking for a loan of $400 to be able to stock maize, wood, and sugar. This loan will allow her to strengthen her purchasing and selling power, and her income will increase to let her provide for the needs of her family and the education of her children.

Mme Q. Judith est née le 05 mai 1978 à Lomé. Elle n’a pas pu continuer ses études après le BEPC à cause de la pauvreté des parents ; ce qui la poussé à se marier très tôt. Elle a deux (02) enfants. L’activité de son mari, débiteur de boisson, aujourd’hui a beaucoup ralenti ce qui fait que les problèmes du foyer s’accentuent. Très rapidement, elle se lance dans la vente de la pâte du maïs appelé « Ablo » en éwé. Ses petits moyens financiers ne suffisent pas pour acheter régulièrement le maïs, le bois, du sucre. Pour cela, elle désire un crédit de 400 dollars pour pouvoir faire les stocks de maïs, de bois, du sucre. Cet argent lui permettra d’augmenter son pouvoir d’achat et de vente et le revenu va accroître pour pouvoir subvenir aux problèmes de famille et scolarisation des enfants.
