Amélé's story

Amélé, age 36, is married to a house painter. She is a mother with three children in school. The oldest is 22 years old, and the youngest is 5. Amélé has been working as a reseller since 1992. She sells cereals and plantain to the public out of her home and in town. She stocks up in Lomé. She works by herself. At present, her main challenge is stock shortages. Amélé is seeking a second loan from WAGES in order to buy merchandise. She plans to reinvest in her business. In the years to come, she would like to expand her business and to start breeding animals. She believes that her profits will help her to provide for her children’s education.
