Bibiane's story

Married and the mother of five children in school - the eldest 15 years old and the youngest five years old - Bibiane has been specializing in the sale of cereals for years. She gets her supplies in the villages of Benin.

With the goal of increasing her sales in order to meet the expectations of her customer base, which is growing continuously due to the good location of her business, Bibiane has sought and obtained a microloan from Finadev. The current loan will allow her to purchase sacks of corn, gari [coarse cassava flour] and beans.

With her savings, Bibiane wants to contribute to the educational expenses of her children and to improve her family's standard of living.
