Essenam's story

Essénam is a young single woman, who has been working as a retailer since 2007. Her main activity is the sale of hair extensions, hair weaves, "pagnes" (colourful pieces of fabric) and cosmetics, which she sells to all sorts of people wanting to buy these products. She has been carrying out this business in her shop without any help from anyone else. In order to build up her business, Essénam, who has just got to know WAGES, is requesting a first loan so that she can buy hair extensions, hair weaves, "pagnes" and cosmetics. She would like to invest what is left over from her income into her business, while at the same time hoping that it will prosper and that she will be able to provide for her future family's needs.
