A loan of $550 helped to purchase a sewing machine and to rent a sewing workshop.


Manguiliwè's story

This woman learned the skill of sewing and since 2006, she has practiced this skill from her house in the neighborhood of Novissi in Lomé. After the end of her training, she could not purchase a sewing machine; she was happy to use her friend's sewing machine.

Now she is requesting a loan from WAGES (the micro-finance group) in order to purchase her own sewing machine; she also wants to use this loan to rent a sewing workshop for her business activities.

She is single and does not have children.
