Yawo's story

Yawo is a 48-year-old man, married to a retailer. He has four children, three of whom attend school. The eldest is eleven years old and the youngest is one.

Yawo has been working as a retail gardener since 2001. He sells fertilizer to all comers in his garden. He buys his products in Lome and has one employee. At this time, his main problem is being out of stock.

Yawo requested his first loan from WAGES to buy fertilizer and seeds for sowing. He wants to reinvest in the business.

In coming years, Yawo would like to expand his business and the size of his garden. He said that with the profits he plans to take care of his family.
