Ameyo Dodzi's story

A dynamic woman of 56, Améyo is the mother of three children. Her husband is retired. She has been a client of WAGES for a long time and has had no difficulty repaying her loans. Her fifth loan will serve to buy staple goods (rice, sugar, mayonnaise, vegetable oil) since she no longer has enough stock to sell to the people of Baguida and its surrounding areas. She buys her supplies at the Grand market of Lomé and she has been in this business for 20 years.
