A loan of $850 helped a member to buy cereals for resale.


Pouwereou De Laouwai Group's story

Mrs. Sissi, age 42, is the mother of four children aged 11 to 19 who all attend school. She sells maize in the central region, an activity she performs with joy as it allows her to support herself and her children.

She is seeking a second loan from WAGES to buy a large quantity of maize for resale during periods of shortage. She has been in this line of work for 13 years.

Mrs. Sissi plans to use her profits to support her children’s education. She wants to become a leading merchant.

The other group members also work in trade. They hope that this loan will help them to ensure a better future for their families.
