Akuvi Aline's Group's story

This is a group of two women with a joint loan. Akuvi Aline, the leader, is 39 years old, married, and the mother of five children who attend school. The oldest is 21 and the youngest is four years old. She has been preparing and selling food from her home for several years and gets her supplies at one of the markets in Benin. With the goal of increasing her working capital and to meet the demand of her customers, she has requested and received a loan through Finadev. The profits resulting from this loan will allow her to contribute to her children's schooling and to help her husband finish construction on their house. Akuvi Aline is to the right in the photo.
