A loan of $950 helped to buy a generator for his mills.

Kokouvi's story

A young man, 33 years old, Mr. Kokouvi is married to a hairdresser. He supports two children, aged 12 and 8 years old, who go to school. Mr. Kokouvi has been repairing and selling mills (grinders) in a store since 1991. This business will bring in the revenues enabling him to meet the vital needs of his family. To satisfy his customers further, he is requesting a second WAGES loan to buy a generator for his mills. He wants to reinvest the extra profits into the business, open another shop later on, and ensure a better future for his family.
