A loan of $800 helped to buy cloth and sewing supplies.

Adjo Akpénè's story

This is a lady who lives in the Awatamé district of Lomé.  She is married and the mother of five children.  But in 2000, she was traumatized by the sudden death of her husband.  Alone, this widow was compelled to provide for her children's needs and to ensure they are educated. This unforeseeable constraint therefore drove her to open a store, which sells sewing supplies and light-weight fabrics.  Fortunately, this business has really been successful, since she manages to pay her rent and her suppliers. 

To be able to replenish her low inventory, she would like to obtain a WAGES loan to buy a bale of light-weight fabrics, some ribbons, sewing thread, overcasting thread, needles, and buttons. 

She is not worried at all about repaying her loan on time.
