Madame A. lives in the Agoé region with her husband and her 2 children. In 2001, she began selling charcoal. To maximize the profit from her sales, she purchases her supply from the city of Paguala in the center of Togo. This strategy gives her a competitive edge in her market. Currently facing a lack of stock, she has applied for a loan with WAGES. She will use this loan to purchase 30 large bags and 20 medium-sized bags of charcoal and will cover the cost of her travels.
