He graduated from the Faculty of Law at the University of Athens and later immigrated to Istanbul where he served as a lawyer of a railway company. In 1912, he returned to Albania and settled in the coastal town of Vlorë. Shortly thereafter he became acquainted with Ismail Qemali and joined his newly formed provisional government as Minister of Finances, a post he held from 1913–1914. He also served as Deputy Minister of Finances from 1925–1928. Çako died in Vlorë on June 12, 1934.[1][2]
