Born on March 1, 1977 in Lomé, Mr. Atsou M. married Miss Hétchéli Lawson who is a dressmaker. His primary business is raising laying hens in Agoè. He began this business in 2002, but with many difficulties related to building an enclosure for his poultry. With a first loan of US$ 1200, which he faithfully repaid, he was able to complete the construction of the enclosure and purchase 50 chicks. Once the chicks mature they each produce an egg a day. Mr. Atsou M. went on to sell these eggs in trays of thirty eggs each.

This loan in the amount of US$1200 which he is presently requesting will allow him to buy 350 chicks which will eventually replace his former layers. In this fashion, he will be able to maintain a constant supply of eggs for his customers.

Né le 1er mars 1977 à Lomé, Monsieur M. Atsou s’est marié à Mademoiselle LAWSON Hétchéli qui est une couturière. Son activité principale est l’élevage des poules pondeuses à Agoè. C’est au cours de l’année 2002 qu’il a démarré cette activité avec beaucoup de difficultés liées à la construction de l’enclos. Avec un premier crédit d’un montant de 500.000 FCFA qu’il a bien remboursé, il a terminé la construction de l’enclos et a acheté cinquante poussins. Les poussins devenus poules, elles pondent un œuf chacune par jour. Monsieur M. Atsou dispose ces œufs en plateaux de trente et procède à la vente.

Le crédit d’un montant de 500.000 FCFA qu’il sollicite lui permettra d’acheter trois cent cinquante poussins qui viendront en remplacement des poules à reformer. Ainsi, il pourra maintenir à normale la fréquence de livraison d’œufs à ses clients.
