Moita Peou Group's story

The men’s solidarity group, the MOITA PEOU Association, is located in the central region of Togo and Koumaï is the president. Koumaï is a farmer by profession and is married to a saleswoman. Two of his three children attend school. The oldest is 9 years old and the youngest is three months. Koumaï is 36 years old and he grows rice and corn to sell. He gets his supplies in the city of Sokodé, located 380 km from Lomé. He has been doing this type of work since 1987, always in the same central region, and he has one person who works for him. Koumaï, the president of the group, is not requesting a loan in this third loan cycle, but he still hopes to build a house with his income. In the future, he hopes to increase the size of his farm and to ensure the social well being of his whole family, and especially to secure a good education for his children. The other members of the group cultivate corn, soy and rice. They also hope to increase the size of their farms.

In this group: Issahou, Haminou, Kondiabalo, Koumai, Affo, Djibril, Mouhamed, Seyidou, Fatao, Manafou, Issa
