Fidèle Chimène's story

A loyal and energetic woman, this is a mother of three children. She is a hairdresser by training and includes with her business the sale of shoes, bags, perfumes, and fabrics. She purchases her supplies from surrounding markets and then distributes them to officials in companies and in schools. The rest is placed in a display window of her home. Taking into account her location and aiming to satisfy the needs of her customers, she is requesting a micro-loan from Finadev to increase her stock of merchandise and to maximize her profit for the sake of her family's well-being.
