A loan of $775 helped to buy kitchen utensils and plastic goods.

Stella's story

Stella is a married lady who has been selling kitchen utensils, plastic goods and 'pagnes' (traditional wraps) from her home since 2005. She is approaching her 42nd birthday and is mom to three adorable children who are all in school. Her eldest is 10 years old and her youngest is 5. Stella sells merchandise to the general public and stocks up at the wholealers in the main market in Lomé. She is requesting her first loan from WAGES to buy more merchandise so that she can better serve her customers' needs. She would like to start selling staple goods in addition to her other products and guarantee her family's basic needs. Her husband is an electrician.
