A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase pagnes.


Akoko's story

Akoko is a 41-year-old woman. She is widowed and has one child, who attends school. Akoko has been selling pagnes (traditional wraps) since 1987. She does this at the market and she is suffering from a slump in sales. Akoko sought her third loan from WAGES in order to buy pagnes. She would like to ensure her only child’s future and grow her business.
