Akossiwa's story

This women learned how to sell braids, but not earning enough income from it, she got started in selling hair extensions at the retail level. This enables her to earn a better income. She has eleven years of seniority in this business and operates door to door. She gets her supplies at the big market in Lomé. Wanting to rebuild her shrinking inventory, she is requesting a fifth loan from WAGES to purchase about 30 hair extensions and more. She is married and a mother of a 10-year-old child, who is in school. She hopes to become a wholesale merchant and to establish a store.
