Pélagie's story

Pélagie is unmarried and 26 years old. She lives in the Gabara Kondji neighborhood in Lomé. She is a hairdresser who makes braids and began a beauty products business in 2011.

Pélagie also offers manicures and pedicures, but in door-to-door fashion since she does not have the means to pay for rent on a shop. The loan proceeds being requested will allow her to buy the necessary supplies for this work, which will increase the number of customers for her business.
