A loan of $625 helped to buy construction materials.

Yawo's story

Yawo is a 47-year-old man who is married to a retailer. He has three children, of whom two are still in school. The first child is 19 years old, and the last is 6. Yawo has been working as a machinist and a retailer since 1992. He sells construction supplies to anyone at his store.

Yawo has requested his first loan from WAGES for buying some construction supplies and furnishings. He wants to use his extra profits for furnishings in his home and for taking care of his children.

In the next few years, Yawo would like to have more supplies in his store to satisfy his customers further. He says he will use the profits to improve his family's living conditions.
