A loan of $1,025 helped purchase of haberdashery products and "pagnes".

Aakuvi's story

This lady learnt the sewing trade and in 2005 opened her own workshop, whch she named "HAUTE COUTURE LA JAUVIALE". Later on she complemented this business with the sale of haberdashery products and "pagnes" (pieces of colourful West African fabric). She thus makes a good turnover every day. She would like to expand the "pagnes" and haberdashery business, and, for this reason she is requesting a loan from WAGES in order to buy various haberdashery products and "pagnes".

She is married and has three children.
