A loan of $1,400 helped to buy grocery products.


Lomalo's story

A dynamic, 42-year-old, married woman, Lomalo has been selling grocery products at the market since 2002. She would like to strengthen her business and is therefore requesting her 4th loan from WAGES. Her first 3 loans were repaid without difficulty. She wants to use her profits to increase her inventory of products, open a shop and ensure her family's food self-sufficiency.
