A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy work tools.


Tamawe Group's story

Katawili was born in 1965, and is helped by nine people in his agricultural business. He is married to a farmer, and together they have 18 children, 15 of whom are at school. This is his third loan from WAGES, and he has requested the money to buy work tools so that he can have a good crop.

Katawili has been working in this area for 30 years, and he is able to handle seasonal change well so he knows what crop to harvest in each period. His entire business is based in the Central Region, and he enjoys it because it allows him to provide food for the local population in general and his family in particular.

Katawili would like to use his profits to build a house, increase the land on which he grows his crops, and take care of his family. Everyone works in agriculture, and their crops are seasonal. They grow corn, rice, sorghum and soybeans. The other members of the group want to make sure that their families’ basic needs are met.

In this group: Katawili, Agnanga, Patasse, Yao, Ydja, Kessele, Aloukou, Soutolou, Nam, Nana, Abra, Adjoua
