Bayo Aurore Clotilde's Group's story

This is a group composed of two women who mutually guarantee one another. Clotilde, aged 39, is the official of the group. She is a divorced mother of three children, who are in school. The oldest and the youngest are 20 and 9 years old, respectively. Specialized in selling perfumes, sulfur, calabashes, cowrie shells, bottles, and other items for several years, she gets her supplies from one of the markets in Benin.

Concerned about bolstering her buying power and fulfilling the expectations of her customers, she requested and obtained financial assistance from Finadev. The profits generated by this assistance will enable her to help cover her children's schooling costs and the family expenses.
