Folly's story

Folly is a 48-year-old man. He married to a retailer. He has four children, all of whom attend school. The eldest is 28 years old, and the youngest 13.

Folly has been a laundry worker since 1986. He washes and presses clothes for all of his clients out of his laundry shop. He works with five other people. At the moment, his biggest challenge is that he cannot serve his clients quickly.

Folly is requesting his first loan from WAGES in order to purchase a washing machine, a dryer, and a pressing iron. He would like to reinvest in his business.

In the coming years, Folly would like to increase the size of his business. With the profits, he says that he plans to put his family at ease.
