Fifa Group's story

FIFA is a group of three people whose members live in the same neighborhood. The representative of the group, Kelome Estelle (whose hand is raised in the photo), is 33-years old and married to a Rodrigue. The couple have three children, all attending school, two of which are dependent on them. Kelome Estelle lives together with her husband and her children. The couple share the various children's expenses. Kelome Estelle stopped attending school at the secondary level. About two years ago, she started a business selling haberdashery in a city in Benin in order to contribute to the various household expenses. Kelome Estelle is passionate about her work which enables her to take care of her needs and those of her children. Kelome Estelle stocks up in a city in Benin. In pursuit of customer satisfaction, Kelome Estelle is asking for a fourth loan with the other members of FIFA group. This loan will allow them to better meet customer demand and earn more profit. Their prior loans were all fully repaid.

In this group: Kèlomè Estelle, Akolekin Line Prisca, Houenafa Bernadette
