Ama Elise
Madame Ama Elise A. is from the village of Gbatopé, where she was born on August 2, 1975. She is married and the mother of two children. Her occupation is the sale of charcoal and staple products in the Tokoin Forever neighborhood of Lomé. This has been her job since 2006, and she always helps her husband with the family’s expenses. She has received a loan from WAGES once before, and paid it back promptly. This, her second loan, will allow her to purchase 10 sacks of charcoal, ten sacks of rice and two drums of vegetable oil. With this new stock, she will be able to make more sales and earn considerable income.
