Kossi A., 41, is married and the father of four children, all of whom are enrolled in school. He does fish-farming in Adéta, a village located about 150 kilometers from Lomé, the capital of Togo. With this first loan through FECECAV, he hopes to have a dam built so that he can raise fish, since importation does not cover the needs of the population. Kossi will make a profit on this business and will be able to support his family.

Translated from French by Teresa Kramer, Kiva volunteer

Kossi A. est âgé de 41 ans, marié et père de 4 enfants tous à l’école. Il pratique la pisciculture à Adéta, un village situé à environ 150 kilomètres de Lomé, la capitale togolaise. Il espère avec ce premier crédit à FECECAV se faire construire un barrage pour pratiquer l’élevage des poissons étant donné que les importations ne couvrent pas les demandes de la population. Monsieur Kossi tirera profit de cette activité et arrivera à subvenir aux besoins de sa famille.
