Ablavi's story

Ablavi, 28 years old, is a retailer of secondhand clothing at a local market. She has been operating this revenue-generating business by herself since 2000, and she gets her supplies from Lomé. To bolster her business, she is requesting an initial loan from WAGES to purchase bales of secondhand clothing. For the future, she wants to open a ready-to-wear clothing store and to ensure her family's self-sufficiency in terms of food. To note, she is a married mother of two children, aged 5 and 2 years old. The oldest is in school.
