Siméssou
Siméssou K. was born in 1955 and is married with five children. After her husband became sick and could no longer work, she took over for meeting the family’s needs. She makes palm oil and now has the nickname “AMITO.” Despite being illiterate, she runs her business well and has repaid her previous loans.


She is presently requesting a $650 loan to buy palm nuts in order to make and sell more palm oil, which will help her improve her family’s living conditions.

Translated from French by Robert Pokorney, Kiva Volunteer.


Née en 1955, Madame K. Siméssou est mariée et mère de cinq (05) enfants. Son mari devenu malade, perd sa force de travail, ce qui amène Madame K. à supporter toutes les charges de la famille. La production de l’huile de palme l’amène à porter le surnom de « AMITO ». Malgré son statut d’analphabète, elle a une bonne gestion de ses activités ce qui fait que ses crédits antérieurs sont bien soldés.


Aujourd’hui, elle sollicite un crédit de $650 pour s’acheter des noix de palme afin de produire et vendre abondamment de l’huile. Cela pourra améliorer ses revenus et inévitablement ses conditions de vie.
