Essi
Essi A., 33 years old, is married and the mother of five children. Tireless and very devoted, she has the sensibility of a good educator and struggles to ensure that her children succeed. She lives in Lomé, where she sells corn mush. With this modest business, she manages to help with household expenses. But the family still lives in hardship due to the burden of these expenses.



Very experienced with preparing corn mush, Mrs. A. seeks to improve her business for greater income. And to do this, she needs more funds. Both honest and sincere, she was able to repay two initial loans. She is currently requesting a new loan of $750 as capital to buy and stock corn, as well as sugar. She would thus be able to boost her income to ensure the needs of her family are met.

Agée de 33 ans environ, Madame A. Essi est mariée et mère de cinq (05) enfants. Infatigable et très dévouée, elle a le sens d’une bonne éducatrice et se bat pour la réussite de ses enfants. Elle vit à Lomé où elle exerce comme activité la vente de bouillie de maïs. Avec cette petite activité, elle arrive à contribuer aux charges du ménage. Mais le poids de ces charges fait que la famille vit toujours dans des conditions difficiles. Madame A., très expérimentée dans la préparation de la bouillie, cherche à améliorer cette activité afin d’avoir un revenu plus consistant. Et pour le faire elle a besoin de moyens financier plus important. Honnête et sincère, elle a su rembourser les deux premiers crédits qu’elle a obtenus. Elle sollicite un nouveau crédit de $750 qui va lui servir de fonds de commerce pour l’achat et le stockage du maïs ainsi que du sucre. Elle pourra ainsi augmenter son revenu pour assurer les besoins de sa famille.
