A loan of $800 helped to purchase grocery items to sell.

Rassiratou's story

Born in 1986, Rassiratou lives in Lomé with her husband, a retailer, and their only child, a 1-year-old. To help out her husband to cover household expenses, Rassiratou has been selling groceries at a market in Lomé since 2008.

No longer managing to meet the needs of her customers because of a lack of inventory, she is requesting a fourth loan from WAGES. She will use these funds to purchase grocery items (rice, vegetable oil, sugar, canned tomatoes, milk, etc.) to keep her customers, since she is confronted with the problem of competition on the ground. She wants to vary her business and ensure her family's well-being.
