Mrs. DOUBOGAN Victorine, 70 years old and widowed, resold tinted fishes and fried fishes at the local market. But due to an illness some years before, she had to stop her activities. She lived with difficulty since her children didn’t manage to provide to her daily needs.
She heard of MEDIC Benin where she integrated into the trust bank of TORI and followed all dispensed formations.
At the exit of these formations, she got a credit of $100.00 USD which allowed her to start her activities. She sells to the market 6 times per month (the days of market) and to her house (from house to house) all the other days.
Her turnover turns around $180.00 USD per month. After the repayment of her credit that she does without fail, she makes a profit in which she saves $12.00 USD per month near in the informal structures of saving. She provides to her personal needs and took one of her small sons in charge.
