A loan of $425 helped to buy traditional pagne cloth.


Améléyassi's story

Améléyassi is a 35-year-old woman. She is married to a teacher and has two children who both attend school. Améléyassi has been selling traditional pagne cloth (highly colourful and decorative West African sarong-like clothing) for the past few years. She sells the pagne at market to all sorts of customers, and gets her supplies in Lomé. Améléyassi has requested her second loan from WAGES in order to buy some pagne. She would like to buy some land. In the coming years, Améléyassi would like to have her own shop selling pagne. She plans to use her profits to improve her children's living conditions.
