Olga Yeyinou's Group's story

It concerns a group of two people mutually guaranteeing one another. Olga Yeyinou, the person in charge is 35 years old. Married and mother to five children of whom four go to school, she still has a domestic servant under her responsibility. She has been selling baby diapers, clothes pegs and hosiery for 8 years and gets her supplies in one of the markets of Bénin.

With the aim of increasing her buying power and expanding her business, she has requested and obtained a micro-loan from Finadev in order to provide adequate medical care to her children and to build a latrine in their house. Olga Yeyinou is on the left of the photo.
