Yaovi
Born in Lomé on October 10, 1981, Mr. Yaovi S. did not go to school because of his parents’ poverty. He had a difficult childhood but managed to find an apprenticeship to pay for his own needs as soon as possible. He was brave, and managed to overcome his difficulties to finish his training. Currently he works hard, in a small workshop that he opened after finishing his apprenticeship, to meet his own needs and those of his destitute parents. But he cannot meet this objective with his limited material and financial means. Mr. S. wishes to open a real carpenter’s workshop where he could put all his talents to use for his clients, of whom he has more and more. He is therefore asking for a $1000 credit to buy small tools and wood for building and selling furniture. This would give him a stable income and ensure the well-being of his family.

S. Yaovi n’a pas été à l’école à cause de la pauvreté de ses parents. Il vécut une enfance difficile mais réussit à entrer en apprentissage pour pouvoir se prendre en charge le plus tôt possible. Courageux, il a pu faire face aux difficultés pour finir sa formation. Aujourd’hui, en fin d’apprentissage, il a ouvert un petit atelier où il travaille avec endurance pour subvenir à ses besoins et à ceux de ses parents écrasés par la misère. Il ne parvient pas à atteindre cet objectif car, il est limité par les moyens tant matériels que financiers. Monsieur S. désire ouvrir un vrai atelier de menuiserie où il va faire éclore tous ses talents à l’endroit de ses clients qui deviennent de plus en plus nombreux. Il sollicite alors un crédit de $1000 pour l’achat de petit outillage et du bois pour la fabrication et la vente des meubles. Ce qui lui permettra de stabiliser ses revenus et assurer le bien-être de sa famille.
