Achille's story

Mr. Achille M. was born on May 5, 1974 in Aného. He is married and supports five people. Currently he lives in the city of his birth with his family and is a motorbike mechanic. But with the economic crisis cutting across our country, his business no longer allows him to provide for his family. He wants to add to his previous business by including commerce in lamp fuel, which he buys at the pump and resells. This commerce works in the prefecture because of the cuts in electricity from which this particular region of the country suffers. The income derived from this business will enable him to repay the loan and to cope with the needs of his family.
