Egnonam
Born October 23rd, 1958 in Gapé Kpédi, Mrs. Egnonam A. is married and the mother of five children. A seamstress by training, she lives in Tsévié where she opened her workshop and has been happily sewing for the last several years. Having only completed primary school, she does her best to get by to support the needs of her family. Her husband, who lives in Lomé, is unable to provide for the family because he doesn’t make enough money from his job as a cashier. In order to meet her costs of living, Egnonam applied for and was granted a loan, which she repaid on time.



In order to strengthen her business and make it more profitable, she is seeking a new loan of $800 to buy various traditional fabric and textiles to resell in nearby markets. She will then be able to improve the standard of living of all of her family.

Née le 23 octobre 1958 à Gapé Kpédi, Madame A. Egnonam est mariée et mère de cinq enfants. Couturière de formation, elle s’est installée à Tsévié où elle a ouvert son atelier et exerce son métier avec joie depuis plusieurs années. Ayant seulement fait le cours primaire, elle se débrouille pour gérer au mieux son activité et supporter les charges de la famille. Son mari résidant à Lomé, n’arrive pas à s’occuper des besoins de la famille car sa profession de caissier ne lui permettait pas réellement de le faire. Pour faire face au coût de la vie, elle avait sollicité et obtenu un crédit qu’elle avait bien géré remboursé.

Pour renforcer donc son activité et mieux la rentabiliser, elle sollicite un nouveau crédit de $800 qui va consister à acheter différentes sortes de pagnes et des tissus à revendre dans les marchés environnants. Elle pourra ainsi contribuer à l’amélioration des conditions de vie de toute la famille.
