Essi's story

Essi is a 23-year-old woman, who is married to an IT worker and has two children aged four and one. One of her children goes to school. Since 2009 Essi has sold drinks, cosmetics and foodstuffs to the people who live in her neighborhood and passers-by who visit her store. She gets her supplies from Lomé, and has requested her first loan from WAGES to purchase drinks, cosmetics and hair extensions. Essi would like to save the profit she makes and one day open a large liquor store.
