Rafiétou's story

Married to a police officer and mother of two school-aged children, Rafiétou is a 34-year-old retailer of products including sugar, honey, corn and pancakes. She sells her goods out of a warehouse. She gets her supplies at the Grand Market of Lomé, and two people lend her a hand to help her advance her business. This is her first loan from WAGES and it will allow her to stock up on goods and supplies (sugar, honey, corn, and raw ingredients such as flour and oil to make pancakes.) In the future, she would like to grow her business and educate her children well.
