A loan of $900 helped sale of charge cards for cell phones.

Edoh Kossi Laurent's story

This young man has opened a stand selling rechargeable phone cards and providing a telephone booth. He began this work in 2007 in Lomé, and the business allows him to support himself. He has accounts with two cell phone providers in Lomé, Togocel and Moov, which allows him a good reduction in cost. Young women who sell his cards walking to and fro in the streets come to buy them from him, and that brings in a tidy profit. In order to put in a new order, he is requesting a loan from WAGES to buy a considerable number of recharge cards for Togocel and Moov. He is single and has no children.
