Ousséwou's story

The wife of an architect, Ousséwou is 42 years old and has three children. The oldest is 20 and the youngest is 14. Ousséwou has been a retailer by profession since 2003 and runs a business selling maize and onions to all types of customers. She works all by herself and runs her business at a market in the area. Ousséwou is a longstanding client of WAGES and with the goal of maintaining her course, she is seeking financial support from WAGES in order to buy maize and onions. She intends to thereby save enough money to expand her business and ensure that her family's vital needs are met.
