Yaovi Sourou's story

Mr. Yaovi is 34 years old. He has two children, and his wife is a seamstress. A tailor by trade, he has noticed that people in his neighborhood have a hard time grinding cereals (corn, beans, rice, millet). This is why he is requesting this first loan in order to solve this problem.
