A loan of $800 helped to buy bags of charcoal.


Dafou's story

Dalou is a 31-year-old woman. She is married to an electrician and has a 15-year-old child who goes to school.

Dalou has been working as a retailer since 2006. She sells charcoal door to door to all types of customers. She gets her supplies in Lomé and works alone. Currently, her principal difficulty is her lack of inventory.

Dalou has requested her 4th loan from WAGES in order to buy charcoal; she wishes to reinvest in her business. In the coming years, she would like to expand her business. She plans to use the profits to improve her family's living conditions.
