A loan of $925 helped to buy bricks.


Grégoire's story

Grégoire has been a brickmaker since 2009, and is the father of six children, five of whom are at school. (His oldest child is 17, while the youngest is 1 year of age). He is married to a homemaker, and is 40 years of age.

Grégoire lays out his merchandise on the side of the road for sale, and his customers are mostly entrepreneurs and bricklayers. This is his first loan from WAGES, and he plans to use it to buy supplies of merchandise so that he can quickly meet his customers’ requests. He wants to reinvest in his business, have a well-known display space, and provide for his children’s education.
