A loan of $975 helped purchase school supplies.


Kodjo's story

Mr. Kodjo owns a school. He is 39 years old and is married to a teacher. They have two children one of them attends school. The children are 6 years old and 1 year old.

He set up his school in 2006 in a local neighborhood. Because of the rigor of the education, children come to attend from all sides of the neighborhood to obtain a good education. On top of setting up his school, he sells school supplies. During this back to school time, the demand is becoming ever increasing. For this reason he is requesting a third loan from our institution to purchase supplies.

With the profit he would like to reorganize the school, install information technology tools in order to open a cyber area, and take care of the needs of the household.
