A loan of $775 helped to buy plastic ware and kitchen utensils.


Adjoavi's story

Adjoavi is a 42-year-old widow. She, alone, provides for her two children, ages 25 and 15.

In 1990, she started to sell plastic ware and kitchen utensils at a local market in town. Customer demand has never stopped to increase, and Adjoavi cannot satisfy all of her customers' needs because her capital is too small.

She is requesting a second loan from WAGES, which will be used to buy some merchandise in Lomé (plastic ware and kitchen utensils).

With her expected profits, she would like to expand her inventory and provide better living conditions for her children.
