Titogbe Group's story

Titogbe is a 5-person group, whose members reside in the same neighborhood. The group's representative, Bernadette, is raising her hand in the picture. She is 36 years old and married to Sylvestre. The couple has three dependent children, who all go to school. Bernadette lives together with her husband and her children.

Bernadette has been a street vendor of vegetables for ten years in order to contribute to the household's expenses. Bernadette is passionate about her business, which allows her to provide for herself and her children. She procures her vegetables from a market in Benin. Looking to satisfy her clients, Bernadette is requesting a fourth joint loan with the other members of group Titogbe. This loan will allow them to better meet consumer demand and to increase their profit. Previous loans have been repaid without issues.
