A loan of $1,000 helped to buy grocery products.

Ayawa's story

Ayawa is a 34-year-old woman. She is married to a worker and has one 5-year-old child who goes to school.

Ayawa has been working as a retailer since 2002. She sells grocery products in her shop to all types of customers. She gets her supplies in Lomé and works alone. Currently, her main problem is that she is unable to satisfy all her customers' demands.

Ayawa has requested her 3rd loan from WAGES in order to buy grocery products; she wishes to reinvest in her business. In the years ahead, she would like to increase the size of her business and start selling wholesale. She plan to use her profits to secure an education for her child.
