A loan of $1,025 helped purchase of "pagnes".


Tsassi's story

This lady is a resident of the Agoè Fiovi neighborhood. She sells "pagnes" (lengths of brightly colored African print cloth), a business she began in 1984. Her many years in this business have given her a command of the sector. She is divorced from her husband and lives alone with her children. This business allows her to earn the money to support her children. In order to enlarge her inventory and make more sales, she is requesting her first loan from WAGES to purchase 50 lengths of "pagne".
