Koku's story

A 50-year-old man, Mr. Koku is married to a clothier, and he is the father of four children. The two youngest (15 and 10) are in school. Mr. Koku learned how to sew as a trade and is now specialized in embroidery. Upon finishing his apprenticeship, he opened his own workshop in 1985. In addition to his main work, he sells damask fabrics retail. To bolster his stock, he is taking out his first loan from WAGES. The profits will enable him to improve his family's living conditions and to make his business sustainable.
