Komi is a mechanic who specializes in autobody work. He is married and he is the father of 3 children, still in his care. He has become the best autobody specialist because he has been in this occupation since 1994. Therefore as an experienced veteran in the field he opened his shop, located in the district of Ablogame in the city of Lome. He has many loyal customers that appreciate the work well-done. He also has a number of apprenticeships, given that many parents want their children to become like him. He currently requires a new painting tool, which is why he is requesting a loan from Wages (Kiva Field Partner). The loan will also be used to expand and improve his general auto mechanic workshop. He is very proud of his services and he has no concern over honoring his commitments.
