A loan of $600 helped to buy cereals and yams.


Afi's story

Afi is a 36-year-old woman. She is married to a police officer. She has 3 children who all go to school. The eldest is 17 and the youngest 8. Afi has been a retailer since 1998. She sells cereals and yams to all types of customers at the market. She gets her produce in Lomé and works alone. Currently, her main problem is a lack of inventory. Afi has requested her 2nd loan from WAGES in order to buy cereals and yams. She would like to reinvest in her business. In the years ahead, Afi would like to create a store of cereals which she could then resell during lean periods. She plans to use her profits to meet all of her family's needs.
