Colette Dassi-Vera is 38 years old and married with one child. After leaving school she trained in haute couture. After her training she became a seamstress. Colette is famous in her neighbourhood. She opened her studio fifteen years ago. She makes clothes mostly to sell in Gabon. She has eight apprentices who assist her in making her clothes. She buys supplies on the international market of Cotonou (the capital of Benin). Having already received several loans from our partner, ACFB, she is requesting a loan which will be used to purchase supplies for her clothes shop. The benefits of the greater profits she will be able to make as a result of the loan will allow her to increase her capital and therefore help her family in their daily expenses. They are saving to build a house for rental.

Original loan request in French:
Mariée et mère d’un enfant scolarisé, Madame DASSI-VERA est âgée de 38ans. Ayant abandonné l’école en classe de CM2, elle a suivi une formation en haute couture. Après sa formation, colette est devenue une couturière célèbre dans son quartier. Elle a ouvert son atelier depuis plus d’une quinzaine d’année. Elle confectionne surtout des tenues pour les livrer au Gabon. Elle dispose de 08 apprentis qui l’aident dans l’exécution de ses tâches. Elle s’approvisionne en fournitures sur le marché international de Cotonou. Ayant déjà plusieurs fois reçues de crédits à l’ACFB, celui-ci d’un montant de 500.000FCFA qu’elle sollicite sera utilisé pour l’achat des fournitures de tout genre. Le bénéfice obtenu lui permettrait d’augmenter son capital puis aiderait sa famille dans ses dépenses quotidiennes mais surtout à économiser pour la construction d’une maison à louer.
