A loan of $400 helped a member to buy a bag of yams, a bag of wheat and five liters of oil to make fritters for sale.


Yémalin's Group's story

This group consists of two members in joint liability. Yémalin, age 57, is the group’s representative. She is a married mother of seven independent children aged 23 to 30. She has been selling fritters for a few years, and she buys her stock at a market in Benin.

To bolster her working capital and meet customer demand, Yémalin obtained a loan from Finadev. This credit will help her to maximize her profits and support herself.
