Ama
Ama F. is the wife of a monogamous husband and the mother of five children. She is illiterate and 39 years of age. Her primary business is the production and sale of palm oil. Her secondary activity is the sale of gari [granulated cassava]. Her husband, a farmer, does not make enough from his work to help his wife cover the family's expenses and the children's education. She must therefore fend for herself in her small business in order to meet the family's basic needs. The adequate supply of quality palm nuts remains her sole preoccupation. For this reason, to aid in this task she is requesting a loan of $800 in order to travel to the major production areas of the country in order to obtain better products at more reasonable and advantageous prices. This loan, which she plans to repay within 12 months, will have a significant impact on her business and above all her family’s financial situation.

Femme d’un mari monogame, F. Ama est mère de cinq (05) enfants, analphabète, et est âgée de 39 ans. Elle a pour activité principale la préparation et la vente d’huile de palme et comme activité secondaire la vente du gari. Son mari, agriculteur, ne tire pas grand-chose de son travail pour aider sa femme à supporter les dépenses de la famille et la scolarisation des enfants. Elle est obligée de se débrouiller seule par son petit commerce pour subvenir aux besoins primaires de sa famille.
L’approvisionnement de la noix de palme en qualité et en quantité suffisante reste sa seule préoccupation C’est pourquoi pour l’aider dans cette tâche, elle sollicite un crédit de $800 pour se rendre dans les zones de grande production du pays afin de s’approvisionner des meilleures produits à des prix plutôt mesurés et avantageux.
Ce crédit qu’elle se propose de rembourser en douze mois aura un impact significatif sur son activité et surtout sur la situation financière de sa famille.
