Messamesso's story

Messamesso is a 34 year old woman. She is married to a pastor and mother to 2 children (5 and 2 years old). The oldest goes to school for now. To lend a hand to her spouse with the family responsibilities, she resells pagne cloth (colorful West African fabric), books and CDs in a shed. The first loan requested from WAGES will help her to buy more merchandise in order to satisfy her customers. She hopes to expand her business and support her children.
