Fatima Akankè's story

Fatima Akankè, aged 42, is married and the mother of two children, who are in a school in the city. For a few years, Fatima has been selling canned foods, sacks of rice of 5 kg each, and packets of macaroni. She makes her purchases at one of the markets of Benin and abroad.

With the aim of bolstering her ability to stock up and satisfying the requirements of her customers, she requested and obtained financial aid from Finadev. This financial aid will help her contribute to her children's education and to meet her own needs.
