Mawulawe Hortense
Mawulawe Hortense, aged 33, lives with her husband and is the mother of three children, who are in a local school. For seven years, she has been selling 'pagnes' (the colorful cloth of western Africa), secondhand clothing, and shoes in a store located in the heart of the city. She stocks up from one of the markets in her sub-region.

With the aim of growing her supplying capacity and satisfying customer demands, she requested and obtained financial aid from Finadev. This aid will enable her to bolster her business fund and to help with her children's schooling costs. She would like to expand her business in order to capture most of the market and to help out her husband to subscribe to Benin's potable water supply.

Agée de 33 ans, Mawulawe Hortense vit avec son mari et mère de trois enfants scolarisés dans une école de la place. Elle vend des pagnes, de la friperie et des chaussures dans une boutique sise au cœur de la ville depuis sept ans. Elle fait ses approvisionnements dans l'un des marchés de la sous région. En vue de d'accroître sa capacité d'approvisionnement et de satisfaire la demande de ses clients, elle a sollicité et a obtenu un concours financier auprès de Finadev. Ce concours lui permettra de renforcer son fonds de commerce et de participer à la scolarisation de ses enfants. Elle souhaiterait agrandir son activité afin de détenir la grande part du marché et aider son mari à s'abonner à la source d'eau potable du Bénin.
