A loan of $1,200 helped to buy "pagnes", telephone recharge cards, and general food products.


Kamilo's story

Married to a building technician, Kamilo is 30 years old and the mother of a 6-month-old child.

In 2006, she started to sell "pagnes" (traditional West-African fabrics), telephone recharge cards and food products, from her home.

To overcome the difficulties associated with local competition, Kamilo has applied for a second loan from WAGES. This loan will be used to buy products that she will resell to her customers.

Kamilo wants to reinvest in her business and ensure the well-being of her family.
