A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase handbags and clothing to sell.


Marie's story

Married to an accountant, Marie herself is a retailer of handbags and clothing. She is 40 years old and the mother of five children, of whom four are in school. Her eldest is 23 years old, and the last is 11. Marie has had a shop since 2000 and is assisted by two employees. She is requesting her first loan from WAGES to purchase handbags and clothing for satisfying the demands of her customers for the year's end. Her profits will be used for reinvesting in her business. She wants to increase the size of her shop and to improve her family's living conditions.
