Kokou's story

Kokou E. is a 27-year-old married man. He lives in Wome, a small town approximately 130 kilometers from Lomé, the capital of Togo. He does not have any children because he does not yet have the means to provide for them.

He has started a business selling cellphones and prepaid cellphone cards to improve his financial situation. Since there is no electricity in Wome, most residents have cellphones, and Kokou’s shop has been doing very well. With this loan from Kiva, Kokou hopes to buy more cellphone cards to resell and build a new display to make his shop look more professional. With the profits he will earn from his business, Kokou can better provide for his wife and save money for his future family.
