A loan of $775 helped to buy second-hand clothes.


Daté's story

Daté is a 28-year-old man. He is married to a reseller and has one 8-year-old child who goes to school.

He has been working as a reseller since 2008 and sells second-hand clothes to all clients, in town. He buys his merchandise in Lomé and works alone. At the moment, his main difficulty is that he cannot meet the needs of all his customers.

Daté has requested his second loan from WAGES in order to buy second-hand clothes. He wants to reinvest in the activity.

In the coming years, he would like to increase the size of his business. He says that with the profits, he is planning to take care of his child's education.
