Koko
Born May 6th, 1973 in Lome in the Gulf prefecture, Mrs. Koko L. is a seamstress and the married mother of two children. She didn't have the opportunity to pursue her studies and instead learned to sew to survive. With only one machine that isn't in good condition, she isn't able to quickly make clothing for her customers. She is therefore seeking a $1000 loan to acquire new sewing machines and other equipment that will facilitate her work.
