A loan of $800 helped to purchase a motorcycle.


Kokou's story

Mr V. Kokou was born in 1985 in Tsevie. He quit school at an early age, but he earned his driver's license thanks to the good will and aid of others. As he lacks the means to buy a automobile, he has decided to buy a motorcycle instead. There is plenty of work to be found, on condition that one has transportation, such as a motorcycle.

He is accomplished in his driving skills, and asks for a loan of $800.00, which will allow him to buy a motorcycle and to find work in order to help his parents and to better their current living conditions.

Monsieur V. Kokou est né en 1985 à Tsévié. Abandonnant très tôt ses études, il a pu avoir son permis de conduire grâce à des gens de bonne volonté qui l’ont aidé. Par manque de moyens pour acheter un véhicule il opte pour la conduite de moto. C’est un travail très florissant à condition que tu as ta propre moto.

Maîtrisant bien son métier, il sollicite un crédit de $800, qui servira à l’achat d’une moto afin de mieux rentabiliser ses affaires pour pouvoir contribuer d’avantage à l’amélioration des conditions de ses parents.
