This woman is a widow, and she assumes sole responsibility for educating her child.  She has learned how to style hair.  Unfortunately, this trade did not bring in what she wished from it.  For this reason, she decided to embark on the sale of quality pagnes (colorful West African cloth) and cosmetics in 1989 in the district of Avédji in Lomé, there in her hair salon.  She also sells women's purses.  This new business is gainful for her, and so she is delighted with it.  To replenish her diminished stock at this time, she's requesting a loan from WAGES to buy some pagnes and certain cosmetic products.

Cette dame est veuve et assume seule l’éducation scolaire de son enfant. Elle a appris la coiffure ; malheureusement, ce métier ne lui rapporte pas comme elle le souhaite. C’est pour cette raison qu’elle a décidé en 1989 de se lancer dans la vente de pagnes de qualités et des produits cosmétiques dans le quartier d’Avédji à Lomé, dans son atelier de coiffure. Elle vend également des sacs de sortie pour dames. Ce nouveau commerce lui rapporte bien et elle se réjouit donc de cette nouvelle activité. C’est pour renouveler son stock en baisse en ce moment qu’elle sollicite un crédit de WAGES pour acheter des pagnes et certains produits cosmétiques.
