A loan of $600 helped to lease a place for his shop and to buy barbershop supplies and tools.


Bruno's story

Bruno S. was born in Cotonou, Republic of Bénin, on October 6, 1984. He is single and has no children. Having no money, he left secondary school and apprenticed for three years to learn haircutting. When finished, he wanted to open a barber shop but lacked financial means. As a very intelligent and polite man, he has quickly won the trust of his community.

And so he is requesting a loan of $600 for leasing and outfitting his shop and for buying certain supplies and very useful tools of the trade. Accomplishing these goals will improve his living conditions and ensure a degree of financial independence.

Né le 06 octobre 1984 à Cotonou en république du BENIN, Monsieur S. Bruno est célibataire sans enfant. Par manque de moyen, il a abandonné les études secondaires pour se lancer dans l’apprentissage de la coiffure pour homme pendant trois ans. A la fin de l’apprentissage, il désir ouvrir son atelier mais manque de moyens financiers. Très intelligent et poli, il a vite gagné la confiance dans habitants de sa localité.

Ainsi, il sollicite un crédit de $600 qui va lui permettre de louer et d’aménager son atelier et d'acheter certains matériels de coiffure très utiles. La réalisation de ce projet améliorera ses conditions de vie et lui assurera une autonomie financière.
