Wend Waogo Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy condiments and rice for her restaurant sales.

Wend Waogo Group's story

Alimata is 47 years old, married, and mother of three children. She has been working in the restaurant business for 20 years. She needs a loan to buy condiments and rice for her restaurant sales.

Her restaurant is well located and she is well known for her experience; she is also respectful and welcoming to her customers. On top of that, the dishes she offers to her customers are varied and have great taste, so all these factors mean her business is doing well.

After her sales, she will have profits that will enable her to make savings and to look after her family, as well as to continue her work. She is at her fourth loan cycle with ACFIME and her repayments are made normally.
