Yao
Mr. Yao Gossoou was born in 1978. He was forced to abandon his studies in High School because his family lacked the funds to support his education. He learned refrigerator reparation and other similar devices. However, he did not have the funds necessary to purchase the tools he needed to practice this profession. And so, he turned to farming, in particular corn. The father of two children, he is able to support his family because of this enterprise. Currently, he is asking for a loan that will help him to enlarge his field thereby helping to contribute to the improvement of his family's living conditions.

Monsieur G. Yao est né en 1978. Il a arrêté ses études en classe de seconde par manque de moyen financier et se retrouve en apprentissage.

Mais n’ayant pas les moyens nécessaires pour acheter le matériel nécessaire pour l’exercice de son métier, il est revenu au village pour embrasser la culture du maïs. Père de deux (2) enfants, il arrive à subvenir aux besoins du foyer grâce au revenu de son champ. A présent, il sollicite un crédit qui va lui permettre d’agrandir son champ afin d’augmenter ses revenu et par conséquent contribuer davantage à l’amélioration des conditions de vie de sa famille.
