Kossi

Born on 31 December 1972 in Lomé, Mr. Kossi ATSU abandoned his secondary studies very early and began as an apprentice tailor for men's and women's clothing, due to his parents' lack of means. A widower with 6 people in his care, he has become a master tailor as a result of his efforts over the past 15 years. He supports his household alone with a small income. He has problems with his sewing and haberdashery equipment and would like to enlarge his workshop. Thus, he is asking for a loan of $800 to realize this project. Providing him this financial support will contribute to the improvement of Mr. Kossi ATSU's living conditions.
