Kokou
Kokou A. was born in 1957 in Tsévié. He left elementary school because of a lack of financial support. He has worked as a taxi driver after a few year in an apprenticeship. After a while, he realized that this work was not profitable enough to support his nine children. He then turned towards selling grocery items and has been able to manage an initial loan, which he repaid without a problem.



His energy and honesty has encouraged him to request again a loan of $850 to acquire goods (canned foods, soap, etc.). By doing this, he thinks he can make his business worthwhile in order to increase his income and thus help to improve even more his family's living conditions.

Translated from French by Daniel Kuey, Kiva Volunteer.




Monsieur A. Kokou est né en 1957 à Tsévié et a arrêté ses études au cours primaire par manque de support financier. Devenu chauffeur de taxi après quelques années d’apprentissage, il exerça ce métier jusqu’à un certains temps où son expérience lui révèle la non rentabilité à cause de la charge de ses neufs (09) enfants. Lancé dans le commerce d’alimentation générale, il est arrivé à bien gérer le premier crédit qu’il a remboursé sans incident.


Son dynamisme et son honnêteté lui ont encouragé à solliciter encore un crédit de $850 qui servira à l’achat des articles (boites de conserves, savons et autres). Par ceci il pense rentabiliser ses affaires pour augmenter ses revenus afin de mieux contribuer à l’amélioration des conditions de vie de sa famille.
