Ovowareborie's story

Ovawareborie was born in 1978; she is married to a journalist and the mother of three children, two of whom go to school. Her income-generating activity is the retail of second-hand fiber goods. She sells bed sheets, kitchen towels, and towels. She sells to her clients by going door-to-door, and gets her supplies from the market of Hedzranawoe (this market is famed for its sales of second-hand fiber goods).

A long-standing client of WAGES, she is requesting her third loan with us to stock up on merchandise (bed sheets, kitchen and bathroom towels, etc.) In the future, she wants to make her business sustainable by diversifying her sales to include other second-hand fiber goods, and she wants to support her husband in paying for the household’s expenses.
