Aged 38, Mrs. Akouyouvi A. is single and has no children. She stopped her studies at elementary school level because of lack of money, and took on an apprenticeship. Now a master seamstress, she offers a quality service to a growing number of clients. In order to improve this service and meet her clients’ needs in a timely manner, Mrs. A. wishes to buy two sewing machines and an embroidery machine. This requires substantial financial means, which she does not have. She is therefore asking for a loan of $1,200 to enable her to buy these tools of her trade.

Agée de 38 ans, Madame A. Akouyouvi est une femme célibataire sans enfant. Elle arrêta ses études au cours primaire à cause du manque de moyens et entra en apprentissage. Aujourd'hui maîtresse couturière, elle rend un service de qualité à sa clientèle qui devient de plus en plus grande. En vue d'améliorer ce service et satisfaire à temps ses clients, Madame A. Akouyouvi désire acquérir deux (2) machines à coudre et une machine à broder. Cela demande des moyens financiers important dont elle ne dispose pas. Elle sollicite pour ce faire un crédit de $1200 qui lui permettra d'acquérir ces outils de travail.
