A loan of $950 helped to buy condiments.


Essi's story

Essi is a 44-year-old woman who is married to a technician. She has two children. She has been working as a seller of condiments (tomatoes, chili peppers, onions) since 2003 at the NUKAFU market. She makes her purchases in DJABLE (a town located a few kilometers from the city of LOME).

Essi has requested her third loan from WAGES to increase her stock by buying more condiments. She says that, with the profits, she plans on helping out her husband in covering household expenses and ensuring a shining future for her two children.
