Afi
Afi G. was born on August 13, 1965 in Tabligbo. She did not have the opportunity to go to school because her parents were slow to understand the necessity of educating a girl. She currently sells basic daily necessities (groceries). Married and the mother of three, she is also the guardian of two other children. Household expenses became more burdensome, and her meager income was insufficient. The family now lives in poverty. Her husband lacks a steady job and does not help with the bills very much. Ms. GAGA finds herself trapped by these responsibilities and does not know what to do anymore. Despite her courage and will, her family falls prey to daily problems. She had benefited from a $450 loan that she handled and repaid in a satisfactory manner. A very energetic woman brimming with confidence, she is in need of financial support to bolster and grow her small business. Therefore, she is requesting a loan of $850 as capital to acquire fish and grocery items to sell. Financing this business means contributing to the struggle against poverty in deprived areas.

Madame G. Afi est née le 14 août 1965 à Tabligbo. Elle n’a pas eu la chance d’aller à l’école car ses parents n’ont pas vite compris la nécessite de la scolarisation d’une fille. Elle a aujourd’hui comme activité le petit commerce de vente des produits de première nécessité (épicerie). Mariée et mère de trois (03) enfants, elle a à sa charge deux (02) autres enfants. Les charges du ménage devenant plus lourdes que le maigre revenu de Mme GAGA, la misère s’est installée dans la famille. Son mari qui n’a pas un emploi fixe ne contribue pas efficacement aux charges du ménage. Elle se trouve écrasée par les charges et ne sait plus à quel saint se vouer. Malgré son courage et sa volonté, son ménage est en proie à des difficultés quotidiennes. Elle bénéficia alors d’un crédit de $450 qu’elle avait su bien gérer et rembourser sans incident. Très dynamique et pleine de confiance, elle a besoin d’un appui financier pour renforcer et accroître son petit commerce. Elle sollicite, pour ce faire, un crédit de $850 qui servira de fonds de commerce pour l’achat et la revente du poisson et des produits d’épicerie. Financer cette activité, c’est contribuer à la lutte contre la pauvreté des milieux démunis.
