Kodjo's story

Kodjo, age 42, is married to a reseller and has three school-attending children. The eldest is 14 years old, the youngest is 6. Kodjo is a two-wheeler mechanic who runs his business with his apprentices in his workshop. He started it in 1990. His main difficulty is competition in the field. He's seeking his second loan, which he wants to use to buy compressors and compressed-air machines. He wants to put away the additional profits, expand his business, and have a happy family.
