A loan of $800 helped to buy cosmetic products.


Bédériatou's story

Ms. Bédériatou is a homemaker. She is 31 years old and has two children in her care. Her husband is a building painter. To better support her role as a homemaker, she has run a business selling cosmetics since 2002. She gets her supplies from cosmetics wholesalers in Lomé and makes her sales door-to-door. Her clientele is growing from day to day, and because she does not have enough financial means to respond to their needs, she is seeking a third loan through WAGES in order to be able to replenish her supply of cosmetics. She wants to expand her business, diversify her merchandise, set up a permanent sales point, and ensure her family's basic needs.
