A loan of $1,050 helped purchase of tires and spare parts for re-sale.


Saliou Babatounde's story

This gentleman learned to be a mechanic but since he did not have the financial means to open a garage, he began selling tires in 2005. He works in the autonomous port of Lomé. Presently, his stock is expended and he wants to replenish it, so he is asking WAGES for his second loan to buy tires and various auto spare parts.



He is married and the father of 3 children. It is with his income from this business that he supports his family.
