Ms. Kokoe Hortense M. was born January 10, 1975 in Lomé in the Golfe prefecture. She is married to a teacher, has one child and also takes care of another individual. She has an elementary-school level education and is a hairdresser by trade. She opened her first beauty salon in her neighborhood in Nukafu.

She is very energetic, kind and devoted and does everything she can to keep her family together. Thanks to her work experience, she has the ability to manage a loan and to repay it on time. She is requesting a loan of $800 to buy hair dryers and hairpieces in order to better satisfy her customers and earn a maximum profit. This loan will help her to improve her family's economic and social conditions.

Née le 10 janvier 1975 à Lomé dans la préfecture du Golfe, Madame M. Kokoe Hortense est mariée à un enseignant, et est mère d’un enfant. Elle a aussi une personne à charge. De niveau primaire, elle est coiffeuse de profession et a ouvert un salon dans son quartier à Nukafu. Le mari avec son salaire insignifiant, n’arrive pas à satisfaire les besoins de la famille. Il revient à Madame M. Kokoe de prendre en charge le foyer. Très dynamique, sympathique et dévouée, elle met tout en œuvre pour garder l’harmonie dans la famille. Par ses expériences dans le métier, elle a la capacité de gérer un crédit et à le rembourser au moment opportun. Pour ce faire, elle sollicite un crédit de $800 pour l’achat de séchoirs et mèches pour mieux satisfaire ses clients et réaliser un profit maximum. Ce crédit contribuera à l’amélioration des conditions de vie de la famille, sur le plan économique et social.
