Bénédicta Baï's Group's story

This is a group composed of two persons who mutually guarantee one another. Bénédicta, the group's official, is 37 years old, married, and the mother of three children, of whom the oldest and the youngest are 20 and 8 years old, respectively. Bénédicta has been selling packets of spaghetti, canned foods, soaps, eggs, and other goods for a few years. She gets her supplies from one of the markets in Benin.

Concerned about increasing her working capital and responding favorably to the demands of her customers, she and her teammate requested and obtained a micro-loan from Finadev with the aim of maximizing her profits and helping to cover her children's schooling costs.

Bénédicta is the one found at the left in the photo.
