A loan of $800 helped to buy plasticware.


Némè's story

Némè is 45 years old and lives in Lomé with her husband and their children. Némè's husband is a soldier. She has run a retail business for two years and sells all sorts of plasticware at a display stall. Némè's wish is to buy more plasticware and pagnes (brightly-printed West African clothing) to expand her business. To do so, she is seeking a loan from our institution (WAGES). She hopes that the profits she will earn will allow her to diversify her merchandise and to open a store. However, her priority is still to ensure that her family's basic needs are met.
