A loan of $1,200 helped to buy Thai rice.


Davi's story

Davi is 27 years old. She is married to a plumber and has a 10-year-old child who goes to school.

Davi has been working as a retailer since 2006. She sells Thai rice in her shop to all types of customers. She gets her supplies in Lomé and works alone. Right now, her main difficult is a lack of inventory.

Davi has requested her first loan from WAGES in order to buy Thai rice; she wishes to reinvest in her business. In the coming years, Davi would like to open other shops. She plans to use her profits to buy a means of transportation and to refurbish her accommodation.
