A loan of $925 helped to buy carpentry tools.


Bassarou's story

This is a man who learned the trade of furniture-making. In 2003, he opened his own workshop in the Agoè district in Lomé. He is married and has a child to support. This business of his enables him to provide financially for his family. He has a number of loyal customers who greatly appreciate the quality of his work. He makes beds and armoires that are in style at the moment.

He needs to stock up on lumber and also on some brand-new tools; this is why he’s requesting a WAGES loan for purchasing a router, ten double boards, and a piece of carpentry equipment called Moelle 6 circulaire, as well as some other necessary tools.
