Charafatou's Group's story

Charafatou, aged 54, is a widow and has no children to support. She has a store in her home where she sells plasticware, earthenware, and shoes. She gets her supplies from markets in Benin.

With the goal of bolstering her business capital and supporting herself, Charafatou requested and obtained a micro-loan from Finadev. The official is the one found at the left in the photo.
