Sitou's story

Tèle Sitou's work consists of changing money at the Lome market. However, due to local inflation, it is becoming increasingly difficult to do her job. In order to guarantee the durability of her work and help her family, she needs funds intended to respond to her customers' growing needs. This loan that she requests from WAGES is already her fifth loan and would help her work considerably.
