A loan of $1,000 helped to buy charcoal.


Némé's story

Némé is a 49-year-old woman. She is the mother of two children who are 25 and 22 years old. Both children attend school.

She began selling bags of charcoal from her home in 1996, and she stocks up in Lomé and in other towns in the country.

This is her second loan through WAGES and she is seeking this loan to buy more goods. She wants to ensure the prosperity of her business and provide for the needs of her family.
