Rabi's story

Rabi is the 30-year-old wife of a reseller and has two children. The oldest child is 6 years old and attends school while the youngest child, 2 years old, stays at home with his mother.

In order to help her husband with their household expenses, Rabi started her business in 2003, selling general food products, hair extensions, and brocade from her home. She stocks up in Lomé and is on her fifth loan with WAGES.

This loan will allow Rabi to further stock up on merchandise. Looking to the future, she hopes to grow her business and secure the basic needs of her family.
