A loan of $900 helped a member to buy work tools.


Essoham Group's story

The Essoham solidarity group has 13 members in its fold. Its leader is Yawa. 60 years old and a farmer by trade, Yawa is married to a farmer. They have three children who are no longer in school: the oldest is 38 years old, and the [youngest] is 28 years old. Since 1985, Yawa has been growing corn and beans in the central region. Two relatives help her in this work. With the goal of providing for family needs, Yawa is seeking her first loan from WAGES in order to buy some work tools. For the future, she would like to expand her arable land and build a house for her family. Other group members also grow corn and bean and would like to ensure the well-being of their families.

In this group: Yawa, Manzamesso, Akatresse, Antou, Oyeba, Adjo, Kamoua, Mensa, Amavi, Atta, Yaa, Némé, Adjo
