Aminetou M. is 39 years old. She is married and has five children.
Mrs. M. has been selling charcoal since 2003. This will be her second loan from WAGES, which she will use to resupply her stock. Specifically, she will purchase fourteen large sacks, twenty medium-sized sacks, and ten small sacks of charcoal. She will then divide the charcoal in these sacks into individually-sized portions and sell them out of recycled tomato tins. This new supply will ensure that she has enough charcoal to satisfy her neighbors’ needs.
