Blandine
Blandine, aged 24, lives with her husband and is the mother of an 8-year-old child, who is in school. Blandine has been producing soap made from soda for a few years and gets her supplies from one of the markets in Benin.

Concerned about increasing her purchasing power and responding favorably to customer demands, Blandine requested and obtained financial support from Finadev with the aim of bolstering her business and growing her extra income. This surplus will enable her to help cover her children's schooling costs and to support herself. She envisions replacing her parents' roof ahead of the rainy season.
