A loan of $775 helped to buy cosmetic products.


Bédériatou's story

Bédériatou is a housewife. She is 30 years old and has a child aged three who is not yet in school. Her husband is a painter-builder.

In order to contribute in her role as housewife, Bédériatou has been selling cosmetic products since 2002. She buys her supplies from cosmetics wholesalers in Lomé and sells them door-to-door. Her customer base is growing daily, and as she doesn’t have the financial means to meet their requirements, she is requesting a second loan from WAGES so that she can restock.

Bédériatou would like to expand her business, diversify in terms of products, set up a permanent sales point and provide for her family.
