A loan of $1,200 helped to buy grains and yams.


Solim's story

Solim is a retailer of grains and yams, which she sells from her home. 28 years old, she is married and mother of two children, both in school and aged nine and four years. Her business, started in 2005, is in a growth phase, and she is asking for her first loan from WAGES to stock grains and yams in order to satisfy her customers. She wants to save her profits to complete her lodging (home) which is under construction. She dreams to have large stores and to help her husband improve the conditions of their family's life and especially to provide for her children's school fees.
