A loan of $625 helped to purchase grains.


Akou's story

Akou is a 42-year-old woman. She is married to a carpenter and has three children.

Akou has been working as a saleswoman since 2000. She sells grains for all customers at her home and purchases her wares in Anié. She works alone; at the moment, she has no difficulty.

Akou has requested her second WAGES loan in order to purchase grains. She wants to reinvest in her business.

In the next few years, Akou would like to enlarge her business - with the profits, she intends to take care of her family.
