Atisso's story

Atisso Akpédzé is 29 years old and the father of three children, one of whom is in an apprenticeship. For years now, he has lived in Lomé, the capital of Togo. He would like to use this loan to consolidate his working capital, so that he may renew to the extent possible his stock of merchandise, he being a grocer. The gains derived from his business will enable him to realize more profit and to meet the needs of his family.
