A loan of $1,400 helped to buy pagnes, damask fabric and haberdashery items.


Adjisi's story

Adjisi is a young, 40-year-old woman. Her spouse is a company director and the couple have 2 children, who both go to school. They are 18 and 15 years old. Adjisi sells pagnes (colourful and decorative West African cloth), damask fabric and haberdashery items at home, in order to be able to support her husband with the household expenses. She has been doing this since 2006 with the help of 2 people. In order to better respond to her customers' needs, she is requesting a 2nd loan from WAGES so that she can buy merchandise (pagnes, damask fabric and haberdashery items). The profits generated by her sales will allow her to diversify her product range, so that she can attract more customers and take care of her family's every need.
