Adzoa Essi
A. Ess T. was born in Tsévié in 1976. Lacking support, she could not continue her schooling beyond primary school. So, she accompanied her mother to the market to sell condiments. After her mother died, she took over managing the business and added smoked and fried fish for sale. To revitalize her business, she had to borrow $300, which she repaid in due course. She is married to a mechanic and has one child. Her husband is only able to help her from time to time with household expenses because he still does not have steady employment.



An energetic woman, Mrs. T. would now like to offer corn and beans for sale, in addition to her smoked fish. To do this, she is requesting a loan of $950 to acquire corn and beans from villages near Tsévié and to continue selling condiment, as well as smoked and fried fish. Thus, she will be able to provide for her family appropriately.

Madame T. A. Essi est née en 1976 à Tsévié. Pour manque de support, elle n’a pas pu poursuivre les études après le cours primaire. Elle accompagnait alors sa maman au marché pour la vente des condiments. A la mort de sa mère, elle prend la direction des affaires et y associe la vente des poissons fumés et fris. Pour relancer les activités, elle a du bénéficier d’un crédit de $300 qu’elle a normalement remboursé. Mariée à un mécanicien, elle a un enfant. Son mari l’aide de temps en temps dans les dépenses de la maison car son emploi n’est pas encore stable.



Dynamique, elle veut ajouter à son commerce de poissons fumés, la vente de maïs et de haricot. Pour cela, Madame T. sollicite un crédit de $950 qui va lui permettre d’aller acheter le maïs et le haricot dans les villages proches de Tsévié et de poursuivre la vente des condiments et de poissons fumés et fris. Ainsi donc, pourra-t-elle subvenir convenablement aux besoins de la famille.
