Mrs. Gentille E. was born in 1955 in Agoè. A widow with four children of her own, she also has two other orphans for whom she is responsible. She sells condiments (hot peppers, tomatoes, onions, etc.) and this is the only source of income permitting her to support her family. The business earns well but Mrs. E. does not have enough capital to purchase the goods she sells wholesale and thus make her business more profitable. She is requesting a loan of US$ 800 for that purpose. This will allow her to satisfy her customers' needs and make a bit more profit to support her children.

Madame Gentille E. est née en 1955 à Agoè. Veuve avec quatre (4) enfants, elle a à sa charge deux (2) autres orphelins. La vente des condiments (piments, tomate, oignons, etc.) reste sa seule source de revenue qui lui permet de subvenir aux charges familiales. C’est un commerce très rentable mais les moyens de Madame E. son très insuffisants pour plus rentabiliser son activité. Elle sollicite un financement de $800 pour acheter en gros les condiments afin de satisfaire sa clientèle et avoir un peu plus de bénéfice pour pouvoir supporter ses enfants.
