Edibi Iyabo Genevieve's Group's story

This is a group constituting two people who have joint liability. Iyabo Geneviève, who is in charge of the group, is married and mother to one child who is 11 years old and attends school. She has been selling canned tomatoes, soap, packs of sugar, spaghetti and other products for two years. She gets her supplies in a Benin market and abroad. With a view to increasing her capacity to get fresh supplies and to respond favorably to customer demand, Iyabo Geneviève has requested and been granted a loan from Finadev so she can maximise her profits and contribute to her child's schooling costs.
