Roubatou's story

Roubatou is a 42-year old woman who is married to a social advancement official. She has three children who are all at school. The eldest is 18 years old and the youngest 14.

Roubatou has been working as a retailer of second-hand clothing, yams and other products since 1994. She sells her products with another person in the market and has no difficulties.

Roubatou has requested her first loan from WAGES so that she can buy yams and other products. She wants to expand her business by buying a shop in town to sell second-hand clothing so that she can reduce her family's expenses.
