Kossi A. was born in 1976 in Lomé (Golfe Prefecture). He is married and the father of two. Not having been fortunate enough to continue his schooling, he very early on entered an apprenticeship. Lacking the financial support, he dropped out to be a moto taxi (zémidjan) driver in order to support his family. His plan is to have the funds to acquire his own moto, so that he can avoid excessive exploitation and to have the peace of mind to support his family in a positive way. He is requesting a loan of $900 to buy a moto and also to cover the licensing costs. This will then bring in added income and enable this gentleman to provide for the needs of his family.
