Bilam Group's story

Born in 1980, Mr Sakye works in agriculture. He lives with his wife, who also works in agriculture, and their three children in the Central Region of Togo. Only their eldest child attends school. Given the size of the land, Mr Sakye employs seven people to help him in his business activity. In order to achieve his goal of become financial sustainable, he is asking for his first loan from WAGES in order to purchase farming tools. He will reinvest the profits into the business to ensure its growth. In the future, he hopes to purchase a tractor and enable his family to be happier. He is also the leader of a group of men and women that all strongly believe in agricultural work. They cultivate rice and maize, and hope their activities will be sustainable in the future.

In this group: Sakye, Mazimwereou, Mahoune, Tchilalo, Piyalo, Aliassim, Zouloukenemi
