A loan of $575 helped to buy jewelry and pagnes for resale.


Akuwa's story

Mrs. Akuwa, age 49, has been selling jewelry and pagnes (colorful West-African cloth) at the market since 1996. She supports two children, aged 20 and 25, one of them still in school.

She has been a member of WAGES for some time, and she is currently seeking a third loan from the micro-finance institution. The first two loans were repaid successfully.

This new credit will allow her to stock up on jewelry. She plans to use the profits earned to reinvest in her activity, become a wholesaler of jewelry and pagnes, and ensure her children’s well-being.
