A loan of $1,350 helped to buy cosmetic products.


Kossi's story

Kossi is 36 years old, and he is married to a reseller with whom he has three children. Two of his children go to school. His oldest child is 10, the youngest is 3.

In order to adequately meet his family's needs, Kossi has started to sell cosmetic products in a shop.

In order to boost his inventory, he is requesting assistance from WAGES and is taking a third loan, which will be used to buy such goods as deodorants, perfumes and soaps.

With his profits, Kossi is planning to have a larger wholesale shop, to open other shops in various neighborhoods of Lomé, and to send his children to Europe, for their studies.
