Awo's story

This lady has opened a restaurant in the Dabadakondji neighborhood in Lomé, selling scented rice, maize porridge, and stews with okra, mutton, and chicken. She has been in this business since 2000; in order to be able to serve her customers appropriately, she has hired some young women to wait on customers. During break-times, she gets a lot of customers both from public administration and from the private sector. In order to replenish her stocks, she is asking for a loan from WAGES to buy 2 sacks of rice, 5 jerrycans of oil, and various condiments for her dishes. She is married and the mother of one child. She counts on her customers' repeat visits to reimburse her loan rapidly.
