Akoélé
Born January 14, 1949 in Lomé (Golfe prefecture) Ms. Akoélé L. is a married mother of four children. Her husband, a motorcycle taxi driver, became alcoholic after facing hardship and does not contribute to the family’s income. Ms. L. is thus responsible for all of the household income, which she has difficulty in earning with her business of selling chickens at the market in Bè. She has been in this business for 10 years, doing quite well despite the fact that she is illiterate. She has received two loans which were regularly repaid without incident.



Today she is requesting a new loan of $800 which will allow her to buy chickens and to go herself to villages to buy them. This loan will increase the size of her business and will help her lift her family out of extreme poverty.

Née le 14 Janvier 1949 à Lomé (P/Golfe), Madame L. Akoélé est mariée et mère de quatre (04) enfants. Son mari, un chauffeur de taxi moto, devenu ivrogne à la suite des difficultés de la vie, ne participe aucunement aux charges familiales. Tout se repose alors sur Madame L. qui s’en sort très difficilement avec son commerce de vente de poulets au marché de Bè. Elle exerce ce commerce depuis 10 ans avec une certaine rigueur malgré qu’elle soit analphabète. Elle a à son actif deux crédits qui ont été régulièrement remboursés et sans incident.



Aujourd’hui, elle sollicite un nouveau crédit de $800 qui va lui servir d’acheter des volailles et aller elle-même dans le villages s’approvisionner. Ce crédit augmentera la taille de son commerce et l’aidera à sortir sa famille de la misère.
