Ama's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Ama's story

A restauranteur by trade, Ama is specialized in making rice dishes that she sells at an outlet in front of her house. She is 44 years old and has been in this business since 2002. She lives with her husband, a mason, and their three children, who are 22, 12, and 8 years old, respectively. One of the children is not in school. Ama is requesting a second loan from WAGES to purchase condiments, such as rice, vegetable oil, and pasta. Her ambition is to expand her business and to have a well-educated family, thanks to the additional profits.
