A loan of $650 helped purchase of charcoal for re-sale.


Aku Esse's story

This lady lives with her family in the Adidogomé neighborhood, an outlying district of the town of Lomé. She is married and the mother of 3 children. She earns a living selling charcoal. Presently her stock is low and that has caused her receipts to fall. She wants to replenish her stocks to raise her receipts, and for this reason she has asked WAGES for a loan to buy 22 sacks of charcoal.

With the income from her business, she contributes to supporting her family.
