Kossi's story

Kossi is a father of 5 children, he lives with his wife and family. He is 39 years old, and learnt the trade of masonry. Faced with little construction work and the need to provide for his family, he decided to open a food products kiosk in Lomé in 2008.

He obtains the supplies he needs for his business at the Grand Market. This second loan will allow him to increase his inventory in order to meet demand.
