A loan of $525 helped to buy pagnes.


Akoko's story

Akoko is a young woman of 31 years. She is married to a restauranteur and they have three children, all in school. They are aged 10, 8, and 3 years. To lend a hand to her spouse for the household expenses, she has sold pagnes (colorful wax cloth) since 2003. She shows her merchandise in a stall and sells different varieties of pagnes. In order to have a store and to improve her family's living conditions, she is asking for a second loan from WAGES to buy merchandise, resell it, and be able to meet her future goals.
