Gastin Yadema's story

A married father of two, Mr. Gastin Yadema B. was born in November 1983 in Lomé. His wife is a housewife, so he alone is responsible for the family expenses. Despite his efforts, he is unable to get out of the vicious circle of poverty. He is seeking this loan to get a place to set up a general food store. He currently works in a cafeteria. This loan will allow him to have his own work tools.
