Lemma 37.21.6. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $\mathcal{U} = \{ S_ i \to S\} _{i \in I}$ be an fppf covering of $S$, see Topologies, Definition 34.7.1. Then there exists an fppf covering $\mathcal{V} = \{ T_ j \to S\} _{j \in J}$ which refines (see Sites, Definition 7.8.1) $\mathcal{U}$ such that each $T_ j \to S$ is locally quasi-finite.

**Proof.**
For every $s \in S$ there exists an $i \in I$ such that $s$ is in the image of $S_ i \to S$. By Lemma 37.21.5 we can find a morphism $g_ s : T_ s \to S$ such that $s \in g_ s(T_ s)$ which is flat, locally of finite presentation and locally quasi-finite and such that $g_ s$ factors through $S_ i \to S$. Hence $\{ T_ s \to S\} $ is the desired covering of $S$ that refines $\mathcal{U}$.
$\square$
