A loan of $425 helped to buy bowls, hair extensions and shoes.


Akou's story

Akou is a re-seller of bowls, hair extensions and shoes who makes her sales as an itinerant street vendor. She is a very dynamic young lady of 26. In order to cover her needs, she buys and sells products. She is requesting her first loan from WAGES to buy merchandise to re-sell to her customers so that she can make profits. Her future goals are to open a store, to get married and to have children who she can raise well with the profits she makes from her business.
