Dodji is a 35-year old man and the father of two children, both in school. He is a vendor by trade, specializing in selling scrap metal and used plastic. Facing a cash shortage, he does not always manage to have sufficient stock in order to even meet existing demand. Dodji has been working in this field for 2010. He is seeking a loan from WAGES in order to replenish his stock. He hopes to have a storage facility one day, and later on a big store. He would like to increase his sale points and be able to pay for his children’s education.

Dodji est un homme de 35 ans et père de 2 enfants tous scolarisés. Il est revendeur de profession et s’est spécialisé dans la commercialisation de ferrailles et de plastiques d’usage. Confronté au manque d’argent, il lui arrive de ne pas s’approvisionner en quantité suffisante à même de pouvoir couvrir sa demande. Dodji opère depuis 2010 dans cette activité et sollicite de WAGES un prêt pour se réapprovisionner en marchandises. Il espère un jour disposer d’un lieu de stockage et plus tard d’un grand magasin. Il souhaiterait multiplier ses points de service et assurer la scolarité de ses enfants.
