Elisabeth's Group's story

This group consists of two women with joint liability. Elisabeth is the leader of the group. She is 37 years old, married and mother to a 16 year old child who is enrolled in a local school. Elisabeth has been specializing in the sale of canned foods, pasta, liqueur and other items for 03 years. She gets her supplies from a market in Benin. In order to expand her business and to cater to the needs of her customers, she has requested and obtained a microloan from the microfinance institution Finadev. The surplus generated by this loan will enable her to contribute to the education costs of her child and to buy a plot of land. Elisabeth is on the left in the photo.
