A loan of $975 helped to purchase accessories for building his mill.


Ambroise's story

42 years old and married to a trader, Ambroise is the father of 3 children - all of whom attend school. The eldest is 9 and the youngest 3 years old. As there are not enough millers in the area to meet local demand, he decided to start a mill in 2008 in order to grind corn, meal, sorghum and others. He does this at his home, and his main problem is a lack of funds. He is seeking this first loan through WAGES in order to buy accessories to build the mill. With the profit, he wants to open a small grocery store and to have a second mill.
