A loan of $700 helped to buy traditional fabrics and jewellery.

Roukiatou's story

Roukiéatou is a 47 year old woman. She is married to a pensioner and they have two dependent children both of which attend school. They are 16 and 9 years old. To give her husband a hand, to generate some income, she sells traditional fabric and jewellery. She started this business in 1997 at a market in Lomé. Being a previous Wages client, she requests her third loan in order to purchase a greater quantity of merchandise (fabric and jewellery). In the future she would like to open a boutique and contribute more to the costs of sending her children to school.
