A loan of $800 helped to buy wheat flour with which to make bread.


Kossiwa's story

A baker since 2002, Kossiwa is a 44-year-old widow with 4 dependent children. All of the children but one go to school.

Kossiwa bakes at home where she has a traditional oven. Faced with ever-increasing demand, she wishes to buy a larger amount of wheat flour and is therefore requesting her first loan from WAGES. She hopes to make the largest possible profits in order to ensure the continued existence of her business and have a happy family.
