A loan of $1,200 helped purchase and re-sale of sheep.

Agossouvi's story

Born in 1953 in Tékponou, Mr. Agossouvi A. is living today in that same village with his whole family. The father of 10 children, he is a respected merchant. He goes from one market to the next to sell the sheep he has bought.

But he is only able to do this thanks to funds borrowed from loan sharks. This weighs heavily on him and after he reimburses the sum he has borrowed, he does not manage to make a profit. He is asking for a loan that he intends to reimburse over 18 months.

The realization of this plan will allow him to better support his family with his increased income.
