A loan helped To buy sacks of charcoal.


Maria's story

This is a lady who lives in the Baguida district of Lomé. She has a business selling charcoal. She started it in 1989, and it also enables her to help her husband financially to provide an education for their two children. She sells both hard and soft charcoal, and so she has many customers at any given time. Currently, she needs money to cover the costs of transport to Atakpamé in order to renew her stock, which is depleted. This is why she’s requesting a WAGES loan for buying 50 sacks of charcoal. She is well-known by many hotels and restaurants.
