A loan of $1,100 helped to buy pharmaceutical products (generics).


Koffi Medodji's story

This gentleman is a teacher.  He is married and the father of one child.  In 2007, he decided to sell pharmaceutical products commonly called "generics" in order to have additional financial resources allowing him to improve his family's living conditions.  To expand his inventory and to bolster what he has, he's requesting a loan from WAGES to buy boxes of tablets, syrups, some injections, some ampicilline (an antibiotic), and many other products.  This seems to be more and more a profitable business for him.
