A loan of $800 helped to buy groceries, pagnes (traditional wrap arounds), and kitchen utensils.

Eya's story

A retailer of groceries, pagnes (traditional wrap arounds), and kitchen utensils, Eya is the mother of three children who all go to school. Her husband is a carpenter who is 35 years old. In order to strengthen her business, she got a loan with WAGES to buy goods to resell to clients. The income from her sales will help her create other points of sale and ensure that her family thrives. It should be noted that she has worked on her business for 10 years.
