A loan of $1,400 helped to buy hair extensions and cosmetics.

Améyo's story

Améyo, 44 years old, lives with her husband, who is a retailer, and their eight-year-old child in Lome. Conscious of the high cost of living, she didn't want to see her husband take care of the family alone, and it is for that that she considered it a good a idea to sell cosmetic products (hair extensions, facial products, deodorants and other products). She has worked in this business since 2009 in a market in the area and this brings her considerable revenues, which allow her to lend a strong hand to her husband. She is asking for a loan from WAGES for the second time to buy more merchandise (cosmetic products) in order to better respond to her customers' needs. In the future, she would like to become a wholesaler and help her husband with her child's education.
