A loan of $1,000 helped to buy groceries.


Awali's story

Awali, who is aged 38, works alone. He has been selling groceries in a shop since 2010. In order to make it sustainable, he comes to WAGES to request a first loan so as to buy basic stock such as rice, sugar, vegetable oil, tins of tomato and so on. In the future, he wants to expand his business and have a contented family. It should be mentioned that he is married to a saleswoman, and is the father of a child of one that he does not see frequently at present.
