A loan of $600 helped to purchase a sewing machine.


Akossiwa's story

A clothier by trade, Akossiwa lives in Lomé with her husband, a customs inspector, and their two children, aged 13 and 1 years old. The oldest is in school. After her training, Akossiwa opened her workshop in which she operates her business by herself. She lacks baseboard sewing machines. This is why she is requesting a second loan from WAGES to purchase some. With the profits, Ms. Akossiwa would like to invest in the construction of her house, have a large workshop, and ensure her children's education.
