Entry Description

Lomè is the capital and largest city of Togo, located on the Gulf of Guinea. On the coast is traditionally active fishing with large nets released near the shore and pull on the beach by the strength of dozen of young men joined in a cooperative. The fish caught in the net are often scarce and of small size at the expense of hard daily work. Microfinance give these people the opportunity to purchase modern equipment such as winches for fishing nets to work in a more simple and cost effective by increasing the income of fishermen.
