A loan of $375 helped to buy raw materials and pure water.

Sidémého's story

Sidémého is 29 years of age and is married to a mechanic and driver. She has two children, one of whom goes to school (the children are aged 3 and 6 months). To generate income she works selling ice, pure water (bags of mineral water) and juice from home, and has done so for the past year.

As she saw that her business was improving each day, and as she has new customers recommended by other customers, who get supplies from her because of her quality products, Sidémého has requested her first loan from WAGES. She plans to use this loan to buy stocks of raw materials (sugar and hibiscus flower) and mineral water, to satisfy her customers even more. She gets her supplies in the Grand Market of Lomé. In the future, she would like to open a store, and to better care for her children along with her spouse.
