A loan of $625 helped purchase of charcoal for re-sale.


Germaine's story

Mrs. Germaine A. lives in the Attiégou district, an outlying neighborhood of the city of Lomé. Since 2004, she has been selling charcoal, which is much used for cooking in Togo. Her present stock is insufficient to satisfy the needs of her customers. For that reason, she is asking WAGES for her first loan to buy 20 sacks of charcoal. She is married to a gentleman who makes bleach. They have 3 children.
