Yewa's story

Yewa is 48 years old. She is married and has 4 children, one of whom goes to school. The eldest is 29 years old and the youngest 15.

Yewa has been working as a restaurateur since 1999. She sells food in front of a school, to all types of customers. She gets her supplies in Lomé and works alone. Currently, her main difficulty lies in the fact that she is unable to satisfy all her customers' demands.

Yewa has requested her first loan from WAGES in order to buy rice, oil, corn, pasta and yam tubers for her restauration business. She wishes to reinvest in her commerce.

In the years ahead, Yewa would like to increase the size of her business. She plans to use her profits to ensure that her family flourishes.
