Fati's story

A professional cook, Salissou is 35 years old. Her husband is a freight agent and they have five children, of whom three are in school. In order to contribute to family expenditures, Salissou began her work in 2012. She buys the raw materials she needs (tomatoes, rice, vegetable oil, etc.) from wholesalers in the Grand Market of Lomé and transforms them into cooked food to serve her numerous clientele. In order to add to her considerable quantity of raw ingredients, she is requesting a second loan from WAGES to use for stocking up. She intends to expand her activity and allow her children to flourish.
