Mawena Angèle's Group's story

This group consists of two members with joint liability. Mawena Angèle, age 27, is the group leader. She is on the left in the photo. She is a married woman who sells mobile phones, recharge cards, and school supplies. She has been in this line of work for a few years, and she buys her stock at a market in Bénin and on the foreign markets. To bolster her working capital and meet customer demand, she obtained a loan from Finadev. This credit will allow her to maximize her investment and support her husband’s project to build their house.
