Hermione's story

Hermione lives with her husband and her three children who are all in school. Her household expenses fall to her husband but she also helps out. Hermione sells cosmetics, candles, food and drinks. During this back-to-school period she sells school supplies. Her customers are residents of her area and surrounding areas. She buys her products in the markets in Benin. Hermione would like to increase her business capital in order to better satisfy her customers. For this reason, she has requested her eighth loan from FINADEV. The profits she makes from her micro loan will allow her to cover her personal and family expenses.
