Born in 1958 in Tabligbo in Yoto prefecture, Kokou G. ended his studies at the grade school level. Married and the father of six children, he is a welder by trade and currently own his own shop with a dozen apprentices. He is highly valued and renown in the city of Tabligbo because of the broad experience he has acquired in this trade, as well as for the quality of his work. He has complete control of his business, and his fine work is undeniably. This only brings in more customers! But Mr. G. only has at his disposal some worn and outdated tools that make his work slow and difficult. He has trouble meeting the expectations of his customers right now, and he seriously risks losing them. He therefore is seeking funds to upgrade his equipment and have a steady supply of work materials.

To do this, he is requesting a loan of $950 as capital for new and modern tools and to buy materials for his work. This will allow him to satisfy his customers on a timely basis and to make a substantial income for the welfare of his family.

Né en 1958 à Tabligbo dans la préfecture de Yoto, Monsieur G. Kokou a arrêté ses études au cours primaire. Marié et père de six (06) enfants, il est soudeur de formation et tient aujourd’hui son propre atelier avec une dizaine d’apprentis. La grande expérience qu’il a acquise dans ce métier et la qualité de ses prestations font de lui un soudeur très bien apprécié et de renommée dans la ville de Tabligbo. Il a une parfaite maîtrise de ses activités et ses prestations sont sans reproche. Ce qui ne fait qu’augmenter sa clientèle. Mais, Monsieur G. ne dispose que des outils vétustes qui rendent le travail lent et pénible. Il a du mal à satisfaire tous ses clients aujourd’hui et risque fort de les perdre. Il recherche alors des moyens pour renforcer son équipement et disposer permanemment du matériel de travail.

Pour ce faire, il sollicite un crédit d’un montant de $950 qui servira à acquérir des outils nouveaux et modernes et acheter du matériel pour son travail. Ceci permettra de satisfaire à temps sa clientèle et de disposer d’un revenu consistant pour le bien-être de sa famille
