Kossi's story

Kossi is 32 years old and married to a hairdresser with whom he has one child. He is an aluminum welder, repairs vehicle air conditioning systems, and provides refrigeration services to all types of customers in a market in Lomé. During the rainy season when his business slows down, he is requesting a second loan from WAGES to purchase vehicle air conditioning supplies and to build up his stock of evaporators. He has been in business since 2005. He hopes to open another shop and to see his family prosper.
