A loan of $775 helped to buy candy and insecticide.


Akoélé's story

Akoélé is a 55-year-old widow. She has five children. The oldest is 40 years old and the youngest 28.

Akoélé has been selling candy, candles, toilet paper and insecticide strips at the market since 1997. She is suffering from a lack of capital.

Akoélé therefore requested a first loan from WAGES in order to restock on candy, candles, toilet paper and insecticide strips. She is hoping to be able to reinvest her profits in her business. In the long run, she wishes to open a store to sell groceries and various items. She would also like to open other stores for her family.
