Atsou
Born September 13th, 1978 in Bolou-Kpéta in the Zio prefecture, Mr. Atsou W. is married and the father of two children. Very early on he left his studies to enter the workforce. Employed as a maintenance man in a company near where he lives in Tsévié, his salary barely covers his family expenses. This led him to begin selling cell phone credit recharge cards. His wife, a retailer of fresh fish, earns very little money which means all of the household expenses are the responsibility of Mr. W.. He is very energetic and is seeking a loan to strengthen his credit recharge card business and to set up a private telephone booth. This project will allow him to increase his income to improve his family’s standard of living.

Né le 13 septembre 1978 à Bolou-Kpéta dans la Préfecture du Zio, Monsieur W. Atsou est marié et père de deux (02) enfants. Très tôt, il a abandonné ses études pour se lancer dans la vie active. Employé comme agent d’entretient dans une société de la place à Tsévié où il vit actuellement, son salaire suffit à peine à couvrir les dépenses de la famille. Ceci l’a amené à initier la vente des cartes de recharges. Sa femme, revendeuse de poissons frais gagne très peu, ce qui fait que toutes les dépenses du ménage sont prises en charges par monsieur W..
Dynamique, il sollicite un crédit pour renforcer le commerce des cartes de recharge et installer une cabine téléphonique. Ce projet lui permettra d’augmenter ses revenus pour une amélioration de ses conditions de vie de la famille.
