Soedjodo
Mr. Soedjodo K. is a master carpenter in Gbadago, Togo. Born on Nov. 28, 1980 in Vogan, Togo, he is married and father of one child. After his primary schooling, he was not able to remain in school because of his parents' poverty, and this pushed him to pursue an apprenticeship. He has now been working in his trade for five years. An upstanding and creative man and good at managing his business, he would like to produce furniture of excellent quality for sale. For that reason, he is requesting a loan of US$ 1000 so that he can purchase wood, machines for his workshop (lathe, plane, table saw, etc.) which will allow him to increase his income and better support his family since his wife does not work outside the home and thus has no income to add to his.

Mr K. Soedjodo est un chef menuisier à Gbadago. Né le 28 Novembre 1980 à Vogan, il est marié et père d’un (01) enfant. Après ses études primaires il n’a pas pu continué les études faute de la pauvreté des parents, ce qui l’a poussé à aller en apprentissage. Ça fait déjà 5 ans qu’il exerce ce métier. Ayant une bonne moralité, un esprit de créativité et de gestion, il veut nourrir son atelier en fabricant des meubles de qualité. Pour cela il sollicite un crédit de 1000$ pour faire le stock de bois, acheter des machines de travail (rebobineur, épulcheur, scie), ce qui lui permettra d’augmenter ses revenus et subvenir aux problèmes de foyer, sa femme étant une ménagère.
