Yayra Group's story

Jeannette belongs to the Yayra group, which is made up of dynamic women from the Avédji district. The majority of the group members have income-generating activities. Jeannette is married and has four children. She began selling general groceries in 1998 and is the leading female retailer of groceries in her district. She gets her supplies at Lomé's Grand Market and in the large frozen food store in her district. Within her group Jeannette also hosts sessions at their weekly meetings, where the members share their experiences so that they can learn new sales techniques. The loan she is requesting will enable her to buy two cartons of fresh fish and five containers of vegetable oil. The profits from her business will enable her not only to help her husband out with the family expenses but also to contribute to her children's schooling costs.
