El-Pidio Komla's story

Mr. El-Pidio Komla D. E. was born in Lomé on December 18, 1984 and is a young single man without a steady job. This has forced him into small local trades such as selling used school textbooks and miscellaneous items by the side of the road. This local trade has brought him a lot of customers as well as created an increase in demand.

To meet the needs of his customers, he is requesting financing to open a small bookstore and stock up on new and used textbooks and various school supplies. This financing will enable him to increase his income and raise his standard of living.
