Leilatou's Group's story

This loan concerns two women acting as solidary borrowers. Leilatou, the leader, is 42 years old. She is married with two children; one of them goes to school. Her oldest and youngest are respectively seven and three.

Leilatou has owned a restaurant for three years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin. She requested and obtained financing from Finadev in order to increase her stock and to meet consumer demand. Profits generated thanks to this loan will allow her to help with her child’s school’s expenses and to assist her husband in building their house.
