Afiwo's story

Mrs Afiwo is a young and dynamic 31 year old woman married to a mechanic. They have three children, two of whom sit on the benches of school. In order to help her partner in taking care of household activities, she began to sell homemade bread in 2002. She distributes this bread to customers and other persons living nearby come stock up on her products. Her main challenge is payment delays. She is asking for this first loan from WAGES in order to purchase wheat flour and sugar in Lomé in order to make bread. She hopes to use the profits earned to continue growing her business, attend to the needs of her family and in the future purchase land for herself.
