Ayélé's story

Mrs. Ayélé, age 45, is married to a telecommunication engineer. Their three children, aged 7 to 18, all attend school.

She has been selling pagnes, jewelry and cosmetic products since 2006, and she buys her merchandise from a store in Lomé.

She is seeking a third loan from WAGES to stock up on merchandise and better meet customer demand. She will use her profits to provide for her family’s well-being and to bolster her stock of merchandise.
