Akoélé
Akoélé L., about 44 years old, is the mother of three children and the guardian of two other children. She had to quit secondary school because her parents could no longer pay for her education. She then started selling frozen foods. Her husband, a retired teacher, has no other income than his meager pension and relies instead on his wife to meet family needs. Very energetic and honest, Mrs. L. figured out how to repay her past loans with any problem.



Seeing that the craze for her frozen food items keeps growing and growing, Mrs. L. would like to expand her business. The loan of $1,000 that she is requesting will go towards leasing a place for her shop, acquiring another freezer, and keeping a constant inventory of fish, chicken, and other items.

Agée de 44 ans environ, Madame L. Akoélé est mère de trois (03) enfants et à sa charge deux (02) autres enfants. Elle a du abandonner les études au niveau secondaire car ses parents n’avaient plus la capacité de payer sa scolarité. Elle se lança alors dans la vente des produits congelés. Son mari, un enseignant en retraite n’a plus d’autres revenus en dehors de sa maigre pension et s’appui plutôt sur la femme pour les besoins de la famille. Très dynamique et honnête, Madame L. Akoélé a su rembourser sans difficulté les crédits qu’elle a obtenus.



Compte tenu de l’engouement que suscite cette activité caractérisée par une demande de plus en plus forte, Madame L. cherche à l’agrandir. Le crédit de $1000 qu’elle sollicite aujourd’hui va servir à louer un local pour la boutique, à acquérir un autre congélateur et à s’approvisionner régulièrement en poissons, poulets et autres.
