A loan of $1,025 helped to buy charcoal for resale.


Awa's story

Awa is 29 years old. She is a single mother of one child. She has been working as a reseller since 2008. She sells charcoal to anyone from her home.

She buys her stock at the inland markets. She works alone and at this time, her main obstacle is a depletion of stock.

Awa is seeking a third loan from WAGES to buy charcoal. She wants to reinvest in her activity.

In the coming years, she would like to expand her activity. She plans to use her profits to take care of her child.
