A loan of $325 helped to buy hardware merchandise for resale.


Kokou's story

Kokou is a 28-year-old man who is married to a reseller. The couple have one child.

Kokou started selling hardware items in 2010. He works alone, and buys his stock in Lomé. For the time being, his main hurdle is a shortage of merchandise.

Kokou is seeking his first loan from WAGES to replenish his stock of hardware items. He wants to reinvest in his activity.

In the coming years, Kokou would like to expand the size of his business. He plans to use the profits earned to provide for his family.
