Ablavi's story

Ablavi is 43 years old, divorced and the mother of 3 children. She has been working as a retailer since 2004, selling corn and beans to customers in her area, and also owns a restaurant. She buys her products from the wholesalers in Lomé but is currently suffering from a lack of adequate funds.

Ablavi is requesting her third loan from WAGES in order to buy bags of corn and beans that she needs for her business. She plans to use any additional profits she earns to pay for her children´s education. Over the next few years, she wants to expand her business and plans to use the profits to make her family happy.
