Rosaline Afiavi's story

Married and mother of three children in school, the oldest of whom is 15 years and the youngest of whom is 4, Rosaline Afiavi has sold purses, pagnes (colorful wax cloth), damask cloth, and jewelry for years. Rosaline Afiavi stocks up in one of the markets of the sub-region, and her customers are for the most part from Benin and Togo. Worried about restocking her working capital in order to satisfy her client's expectations and to maximize her interest, she has asked for and received a loan from Finadev. This loan will permit her to participate in paying for her children's education and to provide their needs.
