A loan of $625 helped to buy soap for resale.


Yao's story

Yao has been selling soap for the past year in Lomé, the capital of Togo. He is 42 years old and lives with his wife, also a retailer, and their one-year-old child. Yao will use this 300,000 XOF loan to increase his stock of soaps. This will be Yao’s first loan with WAGES. In the future, he hopes to use his profits to reinvest in his business so that he can sell in multiple locations, and to assure that his family’s needs are fully provided for.
