A loan of $875 helped to purchase palm and sodabi (palm-based drink) jerrycans.


Kokou's story

A dedicated 26 year-old young man, Mr. Kokou resides in Baguida (a neighborhood located about 12 miles outside of Lome). He has 4 dependent children and is married to a farmer. He sells sodabi (a very popular local drink distilled from palm). This loan will help him to perfect his production. He procures his raw materials in Notse and resells after transformation in Baguida and to the neighboring population. He started this activity in 2006 and hopes to one day see it grow to become a local beverage production factory and later to export it.
