Oluwatobi 3 Group's story

Oluwatobi 3 is a group of 3 people, whose members are friends who live in the same area of Benin. The group's representative, Véronique Bibiré (whose hand is raised in the picture), is 61 years old and married to Jérôme. The couple have 6 children, all of whom attend, or have attended, school, and one of whom is still dependent on them. Véronique Bibiré and her husband live their child and the couple both take care of the various household responsibilities.

Véronique Bibiré did not go to school. She has been selling various ingredients with which to make sauce (condiments and spices) for nearly 20 years. Véronique Bibiré works with passion, which enables her to meet her needs and those of her children. She gets her supplies in her area. In the pursuit of customer satisfaction, Véronique Bibiré is requesting a 3rd loan, together with the other members of Oluwatobi 3. This loan will be used by them to better respond to the demands of their clientèle, and to earn more profits. The previous loans have been properly repaid.

In this group: Véronique Bibiré, Bibiane Dotou, Augustine
