Dzifa
Dzifa A. was born in Tsévié in 1980. Lacking money, she had to quit school in the 10th grade. She then learned upholstery as a trade, that is, making drapes, cushions, and other furnishings. This is her current craft. She is married but without children. Nevertheless, she is the guardian of her mother’s orphaned niece. Her husband is a taxi driver by profession. But without a car, he currently drives a moped. An energetic woman, Mrs. A. is an excellent upholsterer with a good command of her craft, but she lacks the funds for growing her business and augmenting her income. She has to help with the household expenses, since her husband’s income falls far short of covering them all. For this reason, Dzifa is requesting a loan of $850 to buy the basic materials for her work. She will then be able to help improve the daily life of her family.

Madame A. Dzifa est née en 1980 à Tsévié. Par manque de moyens, elle a dû abandonner ses études en deuxième degré. Elle s’est formée alors à la tapisserie, métier qu’elle exerce actuellement. Elle est mariée, mais n’a pas encore d’enfant. Néanmoins, elle a à sa charge une nièce orpheline de mère. Son mari chauffeur de profession fait actuellement Zémidjan (taxi-moto) à défaut de voiture. Dynamique, Madame A. Dzifa est une excellente tapissière qui maîtrise bien sa profession, mais manque de moyens pour accroître ses activités et augmenter ses revenus afin de contribuer au besoins du foyer car les revenus du marie sont très insuffisants pour couvrir toutes les charges y afférentes.
Pour ce faire, Dzifa sollicite un crédit de $850 pour acheter les matières premières dans le cadre de son métier. Ce faisant, elle pourra alors contribuer à l’amélioration des conditions de vie quotidienne de la famille.
