A loan of $825 helped to buy "pagnes" and other items.


Ablavi's story

Magbéfon is a 40-year old woman who is married to a surveyor and has six children. She has been working as a retailer of "pagnes" (pieces of brightly coloured fabric) and other items since 2001. She sells to her customers from home and buys her goods in Lomé. Magbéfon has been granted her fourth loan from WAGES in order to be able to buy "pagnes". In the coming years, she would like to open a shop in order to be able to meet client demand more readily.
