Grâce Berthe Yabo's Group's story

This is a group of two persons taking out a solidarity loan. Grâce Yabo, the group’s leader, is 22 years old. Single without children, she has been selling school and office supplies as well as kitchen utensils for over two years. She stocks up at one of the markets of Benin as well as outside of the country. In order to increase her stock capacity and meet high customer demand, she has requested and obtained a microloan from Finadev. This loan will allow her to bolster her business and eventually to become a wholesaler.

In this group: Grâce Berthe Yabo, Seveho Angèle
