A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy plates and bowls for resale.

La Benediction Group's story

The group BÉNÉDICTION consists of 13 people who specialize in various sectors. Some sell plates, bowls, or sugar while others sell maize, beignets, local beverages, staples, or yams.

The head of the group is a 55-year-old lady who sells plates and bowls. She is married to a teacher and the couple have one child, age 30, who no longer attends school. She started her activity in 2005, and she usually gets her merchandise from wholesalers in Lomé for resale in a district at the center of the country.

This is her second loan from WAGES, and she is seeking this credit to stock up on merchandise to meet customer demand.

She wants to build a boutique to display her merchandise, bolster her sales, and help to support her younger brothers’ education.

In this group: Wapondi, Kankoumpou, Gnamba, Bossah, Dolibé, Adzua, Adjouyo, Tchétéli, Magniziwé, Mazalou, Yataba, Assimaté, Abibatamé
