A loan of $1,050 helped purchase of "pagnes" and fabric.

Akossiwa's story

As a widow attempting to support herself and her two children, Akossiwa E. has been working as a seamstress and at the same time selling "pagnes" (lengths of brightly patterned African cloth) and other fabrics in her workshop that she calls « COIN DE GLOIRE » (Glory Corner). This has been going well for her, since she can take advantage of the chance to sell "pagnes" to her customers. Having an insufficient stock of "pagnes", she is asking WAGES for a loan to buy 15 lengths of high quality "pagne" and 30 bolts of fabric.
