A loan of $700 helped to buy pagnes for resale.

Akoko's story

Akoko, age 32, is a young woman married to a restaurant owner, and they have three children aged 5, 10 and 13 who go to school. She sells pagnes to help her husband support the household. She puts her merchandise on display, offering several different styles of pagnes.

She is seeking a 3rd loan from WAGES to stock up on merchandise. The revenue from her sales should help her to achieve her goals of opening a store and improving her family’s living conditions.
