Philomène's story

A married mother of four, Philomène is the head of a two-person group. She sells miscellaneous goods, frozen products, and ice cream from her husband’s house. In the goal of expanding her business, satisfying her clientele, and maximizing profits, she sought and received a micro-loan from Finadev. The loan will help her to partially cover the household expenses and reinforce her stock.
