A loan of $775 helped to buy cold storage equipment.


Akovi's story

Akovi, who was born in 1970, is a refrigeration technician by trade. He opened his workshop in 2000 and he repairs refrigerators here and at the same time sells cold storage equipment to anyone who needs it. He is helped out by one person and his main problem is a lack of funds to be able to respond to customer demand. Since he manages his work well, he is in great demand and for this reason he has approached WAGES for a sixth loan so he can buy cold storage equipment and satisfy his customer demand more easily. It should be noted that he is father to two children who are both at school. The eldest is ten years old and the youngest five; his wife is a seamstress. In the future he wants to expand his business and provide for his children's education.
