Yawa Brigitte's story

Ms. M. Yawa Brigite is a married lady and the mother of three children. She lives with her family in the Togo200 district in Lomé. To earn an income, she works as a seamstress in her workshop she calls “COUTURE BB”. She needs to expand her business to respond to customer demand and to deliver orders on time. Having never obtained a loan from WAGES before, she’s requesting her first loan to buy three sewing machines, some fabrics, thread, lining material, and pagnes (colorful West African cloth).
