A loan of $950 helped to buy some poultry.

Akou's story

Akou is a 57-year-old widow with five children. Her oldest child is 38 years old and the youngest is 28.

Akou sells poultry at the market to her customers.

In order to strengthen her activity and to make it sustainable, she is requesting a ninth loan from WAGES. This loan will be used for the purchase of poultry (chickens and ducks), which will be sold at a profit.

She wants to reinvest in the activity, expand it, and be able to meet all her needs. She has been working in this field for the past 24 years.
