A loan of $1,000 helped to buy pagnes (traditional wrap arounds).


Amélévi's story

A pagne (traditional wrap around) retailer, Madame Amélévi is a young, 34 year old woman with no dependent children. She started her business in 2010 and enjoys her work as it brings in revenues, which allow her to take care of herself. She is no longer able to satisfy her clients due to a lack of merchandise, so she is asking for her first loan from WAGES in order to meet her goals. In the future, she hopes to be able to become a wholesaler and start a financially stable family.
