Hortense
Mrs. Hortense D., born in 1975 in Lomé, is married and the mother of three (03) children. Her business is running a restaurant serving local specialties in the market of Bè, a popular district in Lomé. Her husband, a traveling photographer without a permanent job, can no longer meet all the needs of the family. Mrs. D., an ingenious woman, has put all of her know-how into her work and the idea of good hygiene, which means that everyone likes to eat in her restaurant.

With such a large clientele, Mrs. D. cannot satsify everyone with her meager resources. That is why she is asking for a $500 credit to update the restaurant and build up a stock of the ingredients she uses in her business. This will increase her income and improve the living conditions of her family.

Madame D. Hortense, née en 1975 à Lomé est mariée et mère de trois (03) enfants. Elle exerce comme activité la restauration de mets locaux au marché de Bè, un quartier populaire de Lomé. Son mari, un photographe ambulant sans emploi fixe, n’arrive plus à satisfaire tous les besoins de la famille. Femme ingénieuse, elle met tout son savoir-faire dans son travail et a la notion de l’hygiène, ce qui fait que tout le monde aime restaurer chez elle.

Devant cette clientèle, Madame D. n’arrive pas à les satisfaire par ses maigres moyens. Elle sollicite donc un crédit de $500 pour l’aménagement du lieu et faire un stock des denrées qui entrent dans son commerce. Ceci pour augmenter son revenu et améliorer les conditions de vie d sa famille.
