Ayoko's story

Ayoko is s 42-year-old woman, and her husband is an employee of a business. She has one child aged 15, who is at school. Ayoko works reselling cookies and snacks in the market, and has done so since 1999. She gets her supplies in Lomé, and the difficulty she faces is the competition in her market. She has requested her first loan from WAGES to buy cookies and snacks, and plans to increase her business and create other points of sale, and then to save. Over the coming years Ayoko would like to become a wholesaler, provide for her children’s education and have a well-off family.
