A loan of $925 helped to purchase hair extensions, weaves and clothes for little girls.

Akouvi's story

In the market of Bè à Lomé, this woman sells hair extensions, bags for women and clothes for little girls. Thanks to this business, she is able to provide for her basic needs. She started this business in 2004. She is not married and does not have any children in her care. She rents a small space in the market, where she can sell her wares. She is well-known by numerous people for welcoming her clientele. Currently, she is almost out of her stock of hair extensions and children's clothes. In order to re-stock, she is requesting a loan from the micro-finance organization WAGES in order to purchase 250 Outré brand hair extensions, 80 sets of weaves and 200 sets of clothes for little girls. She thinks that this loan will give her the opportunity to make big changes in her business.
