Alexandrine Bernadette's Group's story

This is a group made up of two people who have joint liability. Alexandrine Bernadette, who is responsible for the group, is 37 years old. She is married and mother to two children who attend school. The eldest is 12 years old and the youngest eight. A dressmaker by trade, she has had a workshop, where she makes up clothes, for several years and she gets her supplies in one of the surrounding markets. With a view to fit out her workshop so that she can free up her customers' fabrics as quickly as possible and maximise her profit, she has sought a loan from Finandev. The profit she makes will enable her to contribute to her children's schooling costs and to help her husband finish building their house. Alexandrine Bernadette is on the left of the photo.
