A loan of $450 helped purchase of baskets of fish.

Essi's story

To support herself, this young woman got into the business of selling smoked fish in 1998. She gets supplies very early from the fishing port of Lomé and, to reach more customers, she does business door-to-door. Wanting to restock, she is turning to WAGES for her first loan in order to buy 6 boxes of large fish and 4 baskets of small fish.
