A loan of $925 helped to buy telephone refill cards, second-hand clothing, and canned fruit juices.

Biodun's story

Biodun is a young man aged 31, who is married to a dressmaker and has a 2-year-old child. He works as a reseller in a store, where he sells telephone refill cards, clothing (second-hand) and canned fruit juices to all manner of people. He has a lot of customers and cannot meet all their requests, as he lacks money.

Biodun has requested help from WAGES to increase his supply of merchandise. He wants to invest in a secondary business, and will save the rest of the loan. In the future he would like to become a canned fruit juice and refill card wholesaler, as well as to provide for his family.
