Akoua's story

Akoua is 42 years old and the mother of 4 children, ranging in age from 22 to 13 years old. Three of her children attend school. Her husband works as a driver.

Akoua has been working as a reseller since 1987. She sells and delivers cereals and Sodabi (a type of alcohol made from palm wine) to various customers. She buys her products in nearby villages and works alone. Currently, Akoua's main difficulty is delays in delivering her orders.

This is the first loan she has requested from WAGES. This loan will help her buy Sodabi and cereals. Akoua would like to reinvest in her professional activity.

In the coming years, Akoua would like to increase the size of her business. She says that the profits will help her improve her family's living conditions.
