Bernadette Sica's Group's story

This is a group of two persons who guarantee one another in solidarity. Bernadette Sica, the official of the group, is 38 years old, married, and the mother of four children, who are in school. She has been selling cassava flour, corn, and powdered sugar for a few years.

With the aim of increasing her sales and bolstering her business, she requested and obtained a micro-loan from Finadev with the goal of satisfying customer needs and making the most of her investments. The surplus will enable her to help with her children's schooling costs and to diversify her business. She would like to help out her husband in renovating their house, which is in ruins.
