Dossi Angèle's story

A married mother of three children, in school, of whom the oldest is 16 and the youngest is 5, Dossi Angèle has had a shop where she sells cloth, perfumes, gels, soaps, and other products for eight months. She gets her supplies from wholesalers at the markets closest to her livelihood.

With the goal of bolstering her buying power and satisfying the demands of her customers, Dossi Angèle requested and obtained a micro-loan from Finadev. The extra revenues earned from this loan will enable her to help with her children's education and assist her husband to replace the roof of their house.
