Julienne's story

Julienne sells kitchen utensils and pagnes (traditional cloths) from her home. Her husband is a nurse and she has a 28 year old child who no longer goes to school. She is 45 years old. She is requesting her first loan from the microfinance institution WAGES so that she can buy kitchen utensils and traditional cloths that she can sell to her customers for a profit. She gets her supplies from the Great market at the Autonomous Port of Lomé. Thanks to the profits that she will make from her business, she would like to build a store in front of her house and take care of her family.
