Hortense's Group's story

This group is made up of two women who are co-borrowers, offering mutual guarantee to one another. The group's representative, Hortense, is 46 years old. She is married and the mother of four children who all attend school. Her oldest and youngest children are 24 and 12 years old respectively.

Hortense has been specializing in the sale of hair extensions and cosmetics for a few years, and she buys her goods from a market located in Benin.

In order to increase her capital and to meet her customers' expectations, she has requested and obtained a micro-loan from Finadev. This will help her to maximize her profits and to contribute to her children's education.
