A loan of $400 helped to purchase 'pagne' cloth.

Essi's story

Essi is a 29-year-old woman and the mother of two children, who are in school. Essi sells 'pagnes' (the colorful cloth of western Africa) out of her home and by going door to door. To respond to the needs of her customers, she is requesting her fifth WAGES loan to purchase some 'pagne' cloth. The profit derived from the sales will enable her to have a fabrics store and to build a house for her family.
