Kokouvi's story

Refrigerationist by profession, Mr. Kokouvi M. was born on December 31, 1963 in Togblékopé in the Gulf Prefecture. He is married and the father of 6 children. He has been selling gravel for more than 22 years. His business consists in buying gravel, washing it, then putting it up for sale. He was the first one to begin this business in his area so he has a lot of customers who come from his own locality and others from the capital.

This first loan that he is requesting will allow him to buy 7 truckloads of gravel that he will then wash and sell at a good profit. With this income he will be able to pay the school fees of his children.
