Dono's story

Thirty-seven years old and mother to 2 children all in school, Madam Dono lives with her driver spouse and their children in Lomé. To help her spouse with the responsibilities of the home, she has been selling yams in a local market since 2007. In order to satisfy her clientele, she is requesting a first loan from WAGES to buy yams. For the future, she wants to ensure the vital needs of her family while making her business sustainable.
