Amah's story

Amah is a 41-year-old woman who is married to a printer. She has three children, two of whom attend school. Her eldest child is 15 years old and her youngest is 9.

Amah has been working as a gravel retailer since 2006. She serves her customers on the beachfront. She works with the help of one other person. Right now, her main difficulty is a lack of money with which to satisfy demand.

Amah has requested her first loan from WAGES in order to buy gravel. She would like to re-invest in her business. In the coming years, Amah would like to satisfy all the demand she has. She says that she plans to use her profits to provide for her family's well-being and to get some involved in the field.
