Ayie's story

Ayie is a 24-year-old woman. She is unmarried and has one child to support. She has been a seller of pagnes (colorful West African cloth) since 2008. She makes her sales in Lomé, the capital of Togo, after buying the goods at the Grand Market.

Ayie has requested her third loan from WAGES to buy pagne cloth, some sewing supplies (zippers, linings, buttons) and more. She wants to increase her inventory of goods with the profits she makes. She says that, with the profits, she plans on ensuring that her child will have a better future.
