A loan of $200 helped to buy jewelry and pagnes (traditional wrap arounds).


Akouvi's story

Akouvi is 44 years old and is married to a customs official. She is the mother of three children, two of whom go to school. Since 2008, Akouvi has been selling pagnes (traditional wrap arounds) and jewelry on foot. Akouvi is asking for a third loan with WAGES to buy and resell pagnes and jewelry. She would like to reinvest the extra profits in her business to open a pagne and jewelry shop. In the long term, she would also like to be able to buy some land and pay her household expenses.
