A loan of $400 helped to buy groceries.


Adjowoa's story

Adjowoa is a 36 year-old woman. She is married to a reseller and has 2 children, both of whom attend school. The eldest child is 10 years old and the youngest is 5.

Adjowoa has been working as a grocery retailer since 1996. She gets her supplies at the Lomé Grand Market and sells to her customers from her home, working alone.

Adjowoa has requested her first loan from WAGES in order to buy grocery products (rice, sugar, vegetable oil, etc.) In the years ahead, she would like to increase her inventory, support her husband with the household expenses and provide her children with a bright future.
