Komi A. is 42 years old, married, and the father of five children; three are in apprenticeships and two are in school. He has been selling tires for three years in Assahoun, a village located about 50 km from Lomé, the Togolese capital. Komi is a loyal customer of FECECAV because he is on his third loan. He wishes to use this loan to buy more tires for resale in order to earn more funds to provide for his family.
