Fatoumatou's story

Fatoumatou is a 44-year-old woman. In order to support her husband, a carpenter, with the household expenses and to ensure that her 5 children flourish, she sells retail products (firewood, yams and staple products). She works at home, alone, and is requesting this first loan from WAGES in order to restock her merchandise; she would like to reinvest in her business, ensure her prosperity and watch her family flourish further. She started her business in 1987. Two of her 5 children, aged between 5 and 23, go to school.
