Rose
Born in Lomé in 1961, Mrs. Rose S. has been living alone with her three children since her divorce from her husband. Tireless and devoted to her family, she struggles daily to support her children. Since she was not able to come to terms with her enormous daily difficulties and worn down by them, she began selling firewood and coconut residue which is very much in demand in her area. However, she has moments where her stock is expended and her clientele's demand for firewood is continually growing.



In order to have a bit more working capital and bolster her business, she is requesting a loan that she will use to buy firewood and such, items she will retail in her neighborhood. This loan will allow her to satisfy the needs of her clientele, grow her sales and, especially, improve the living conditions of her family.

Née à Lomé en 1961, Madame S. Rose vit seule avec ses trois (03) enfants depuis son divorce avec son mari. Infatigable et très dévouée, elle se débat chaque jour pour subvenir aux besoins de ses enfants. N’arrivant pas à faire face aux énormes difficultés quotidiennes et à bout de souffle, elle s’est adonnée à la vente de bois de chauffe et de résidus de noix de coco très recherchés dans la localité. Mais elle connaît souvent des moments de ruptures et la demande de sa clientèle en bois de chauffe ne cesse d'augmenter.
Pour disposer d’un peu de fonds de roulement et renforcer son activité, elle sollicite un financement destiné à l’achat des bois de chauffe et autres qu’elle va revendre en détail dans son quartier. Ce financement lui permettra de satisfaire ses clients, d’accroître son chiffre d’affaire et surtout relever le niveau de vie de sa famille.
