A loan of $1,275 helped to buy beauty products and traditional cloth.


Yawavi's story

Yawavi is 38 years old. She is married to a refrigerator technician and they have children. Yawavi has been working as a trader since 2007. She sells beauty products and cloth pagnes to all customers at the market. She buys her products in Lomé and works alone. At the moment, her main difficulty is ensuring a constant supply. Yawavi has requested her fifth loan from WAGES in order to buy beauty products and cloth pagnes. She would like to reinvest in her business. In the years to come, Yawavi would like to open a shop in the Hédzranawoé Grand Market. She says that with the profits, she would like to contribute to the wellbeing of her family.
