Sylvie Idé's story

Married and mother of four children, Sylvie is specialized in sewing, an occupation that she practices in her area. She combines with this the sale of pagnes (colorful wax cloths), corn and beans in her well-populated area, and has the monopoly in her circles. This allows her to rapidly market her products. To increase her productivity and satisfy the increased demand of her clients, she has turned to Finadev. Sylvie aims to maximize her profits to reinforce her stock, and especially to provide for a part of her household expenses.
