Yawo B. is 39 years old and a married father. In the local language, Ewe, his first name indicates that he was born on a Thursday. Yawo lives in Wome, a small town approximately 130 kilometers from Lomé, the capital of Togo. Wome is situated in a lush and beautiful area of Togo near the border with Ghana and is somewhat isolated.

Yawo operates a taxi-moto business to take many residents of Wome to nearby villages. Yawo picks up passengers along the road and drops them off at their destination. His services are always in demand.

To better serve his clients, Yawo hopes to use this loan from Kiva to buy a newer, more comfortable motorcycle. With the profits he will earn with the new motorcycle, Yawo can better provide for his wife and children and save money to send them to school.
