Edwige Gbelome's Group's story

This is a group of two people with a group loan. Edwige Gbelome, the leader, is 43 years old. She is married and the mother of one child who attends the school in the town. Edwige Gbelome has been specializing in selling canned goods, soaps, and produce for eight months. She gets her supplies at one of the markets in Bénin and her customers are residents of her neighborhood and surrounding areas. In the hopes of increasing her turnover and to meet the demand of her customers, she has requested and gotten a new micro-loan through Finadev in order to maximize her profits and to contribute to the education of her children. Edwige Gbelome is to the left in the photo.
