At 53 years of age, Mrs. Améwotoéna A. is married to a polygamous man and has four (4) children. Very active, her principal activity is the fabrication and sale of cassava flour, called "gari." This is a very profitable business because her customers are primarily wholesalers. Being unable to grow cassava herself anymore, she is satisfied with buying fields' worth of cassava and making the most use of it. Currently, she is very limited by her means because the demand has grown very high. Thus, she wants to increase her production in order to suitably satisfy her clientele. She is therefore asking for a loan of $400 in order to make her purchases at lower cost and to realize higher profits.

Agée de 53 ans, Madame A. Améwotoéna est mariée à un homme polygame et est mère de quatre (4) enfants. Très active, son activité principale est la fabrication et la vente de la farine de manioc « gari ». C’est une activité très rentable car sa clientèle est la plupart grossiste. Ne pouvant plus cultiver elle-même le manioc, elle se contente d’acheter les champs de manioc et l’exploiter. Aujourd’hui, elle est très limitée par les moyens car la demande est devenue très forte. Elle désire donc augmenter sa production afin de pouvoir satisfaire convenablement sa clientèle. Elle sollicite pour cela un crédit de $400 afin de pouvoir faire les achats à moindre coût et réaliser de bon bénéfice.
