A loan of $600 helped to purchase grocery items to sell.

Akoko's story

A mother of two children, of whom one is in school, Akoko is married and 34 years old. Her first child is 5 years old, and the last is 3. Akoko has been ensuring the retail distribution of grocery items in her store since 2010. Her business being short of working capital, she is requesting her first loan from WAGES to invest in her business. Her profits will go toward savings. She would like to include commerce in 'pagnes' (the colorful cloth of western Africa) in the near future and to do better in ensuring her children's education.
