Ayémiahé D. has been a widow for five years. Her deceased husband left her with three children that she supports in addition to her parents. To feed her family, she started a business selling common chickens. She is especially courageous and worries about making sure her children are educated. So she works tirelessly going from village to village to look for chickens to sell back in town. But since family expenses have grown more and more onerous, Ms. D. just cannot go any further. And so she is asking for help to improve her business. Her skill and honesty has resulted in more business than she can handle. She is therefore requesting a loan of $850 to enlarge her chicken coop and to serve as capital to do trade in chickens. The profits gained from this activity will allow her to provide for her orphaned children. She will also be able to save more money to improve her financial situation.

Madame D. Ayémiahé est veuve depuis 5 ans. Son mari défunt a laissé à sa charge trois (03) enfants qu’elle supporte en plus de ses parents. Pour pouvoir nourrir sa famille, elle s’est lancée dans le commerce des poulets ordinaires. Particulièrement courageuse et soucieuse d’assurer l’éducation de ses enfants, elle travaille sans relâche en allant de village en village pour rechercher des poulets qu’elle vient revendre en ville. Mais les charges de la famille devenant de plus en plus lourdes, Madame D. n’en peut plus et demande un appui pour pouvoir améliorer son commerce. Son habileté et son honnêteté font que la demande est plus forte que l’offre. Elle sollicite alors un crédit de $850 qui va servir à agrandir son poulailler et disposer de fonds de commerce pour l’achat et la revente des poulets ordinaires. Les bénéfices tirés de cette activité lui permettront de subvenir aux besoins des orphelins. Aussi arrivera t-elle à mieux épargner afin d’accroître son économie.
