A loan of $650 helped setting up her business, storage of corn, wood and coal.


Têko's story

Born in 1969 in Aklakou, Mrs. Têko N. lives in Agbanakin in the Lakes region. She is married and a mother of two children and takes care of four other people. Her main income comes from selling food staples. However, the profits are directly applied to cover her family's expenses and it is difficult for her to start her business.

To this end, she is asking for a loan of $650 with which she can set up her business and buy corn, wood and charcoal supplies. She believes that, if it is financed, the income from her business will help her provide for the needs of her family.

Née en 1969 à Aklakou, Madame N. Têko est domicilié à Agbanakin dans la préfecture des Lacs. Elle est mariée et mère de deux enfants et en charge quatre autres personnes. La principale activité qui lui génère des revenus est la vente des denrés alimentaires. Les recettes qu’elle fait rentrent directement dans les dépenses familiales. Il lui est difficile alors de réunir un fond consistant pour se relancer. Elle sollicite pour l’occasion, une somme de $650 avec laquelle elle aura à aménager son cadre de travail et faire un stock important de maïs, de bois et de charbons de bois. Elle est confiante en ce qui concerne la rentabilité de son projet qui l’aidera à subvenir aux besoins de sa famille si seulement s’il est financé.
