Nicole's story

Nicole is a 32-year-old young woman. She lives with her spouse, who is a cook and their two children who are 3 and 5 in Lomé. Their oldest child attends school. After hairdresser school, Nicole opened her own hair salon. In addition to the beauty services, she also sells beauty products to her clients (hair extensions, hair straighten products, face powder). She buys the inventory in LOME and is requesting her first loan from WAGES to increase her available inventory. In the future, she would like to improve her family's standard of living by stabilizing her business throughout the year. She has been in business for about five years and has two people helping her manage the business.
