Morenike Florence's story

Morenike Florence, aged 33, is married and the mother of a child, who is in school. Specialized in selling objects of devotion for four years, she gets her supplies from outside of Benin. And her large wide and varied customer base is essentially composed of the religious. With the goal of bolstering her capital and responding favorably to the demands of her customers, she requested and received a micro-loan from Finadev with the aim of increasing her inventory and making the most of her investments. The profit gotten will help her to cover more of her child's schooling costs and to support herself.
