She has a shed where she has been selling canned goods, macaroni, soaps and other items for 7 years. She restocks in one of the markets of her area.

With the aim of expanding her stock and to satisfy the expectations of her clientèle, Marie Géradine has requested and obtained financing from Finadev. This financing will allow her to grow her additional revenue and to participate in her children's schooling. She envisions helping her husband to finish the construction of their house.
