Clotilde's story

Clotilde is married and the mother of four children, of whom three are still in school. She has been selling red oil for a few years and stocks up from one of the villages in Benin. With the goal of increasing her ability to stock up on inventory and to fulfill the expectations of her customers, Clotilde requested and obtained financing from Finadev. This financing will help her to expand her business and to help with her children's education. She envisions making sure her children have a good education.
