Oklunon Lingbotoche Group's story

Oklunon Lingbotoche is a group made up of three people living in the same area of Benin. The representative of the group, Suzanne (with her hand raised in the photo), is 42 years old and married to a man named André. Suzanne is the mother of three children, all of whom attend school and are dependents of the couple. Suzanne lives together with her husband and children, and works together with her husband to provide for the many family expenses. For almost three years, Suzanne has been selling a range of products out of her home. Suzanne does this business to provide for the needs of the household. She buys her stock at a market in Benin. With the goal of satisfying her customers, Suzanne is asking for a third loan along with the other members of the Oklunon Lingbotoche. This loan will enable them to better respond to the demands of their clientele, and therefore generate higher profits. The previously issued loans were properly repaid.
