Kayi's story

Kayi is a 46-year-old woman. She is married to an employee and has four children who all attend school. Her oldest child is 15 years old and the youngest is 3.

Kayi has been working as a reseller since 2004. She sells fabrics to all clients from her home. She buys her products in Lomé and works alone. At the moment, her main difficulty is that she is out of stock.

Kayi has requested her second loan from WAGES in order to buy some fabrics, deodorants and perfumes. She wants to reinvest in the business.

In the coming years, she would like to open a shop. She says that with the profits, she is planning to take care of her family's needs.
