Florentine's Group's story

This is a group made up of two women who are co-borrowers. Florentine, the group leader, is 41 years old; she is married and the mother of three children who attend school. The eldest and the youngest are 13 and 5 years old, respectively. A traveling hosiery saleswomen for the past five years, Florentine gets her supplies from wholesalers in one of the outdoor markets. Her customers are mainly women. With the intention of increasing her capital and meeting customer demand, she has sought and obtained a loan from Finadev with an eye to maximizing her interest and contributing to her children's education. Florentine is on the left in the photo.
