A loan of $400 helped a member to purchase four sacks of corn.


Brigitte's Group's story

This is a group made up of two women who are mutually guaranteeing their loan. Brigitte, the group's leader, is 34 years old, married and the mother of one child who is 21 years old and already attending college.

Brigitte has been selling sacks of corn for five years and gets her supplies in one of Benin's markets. In the hope of increasing her capital and responding favorably to customer demand, she has sought and obtained a micro-loan from Finadev. The profits made possible by this loan will allow her to contribute to her child's vocational training and to meet her needs. Brigitte appears at left in the photo.

In this group: Brigitte, Delphine Ablan
