Ablavi's story

Ablavi is 45 years old and lives with her three children and their father in Lomé. The children are all at school. In order to be able to contribute to providing for the family's needs, she has since 1991 been selling charcoal and cereals in a district of Lomé. In order to be able to satisfy customer demand more easily, she is requesting her second loan from WAGES so that she can buy goods. The profits she makes from her sales will enable her to increase her turnover and improve her family's living conditions.
