A loan of $975 helped to make his shop look more professional.


Kossi's story

Kossi H. is a 36-year-old married father. In the local language, Ewe, his first name indicates that he was born on Sunday. Kossi lives in the village of Wome, a small town approximately 130 kilometers from Lomé, the Togolese capital. To provide for his family, Kossi sells ‘sandelettes,’or flip-flops, in a small boutique located in the central market in Wome. These comfortable and inexpensive shoes are very popular among Togolese in this region and are always in demand.

Kossi hopes to use the money from this loan from FECECAV to make his shop look more professional through the creation of a display for his flip-flops. He hopes to attract more customers and compete with other vendors. With the profits from his business he will be able to continue to support his children and improve their quality of life.
