Clémentine Christine's story

Clémentine Christine, aged 61, is married and the mother of four children who are already supporting themselves. She has a restaurant located in the heart of the city where she makes different foods and drinks and has been selling them for several years. She gets her supplies from one of the markets in Benin. Her customer base is composed of Beninese and Nigerians.

Concerned about bolstering her purchasing power and fulfilling the expectations of her customers, she requested and obtained financial support from Finadev. This financial support will enable her to grow her extra revenues and to support herself. She envisions renovating her bar-restaurant and helping with her grandchildren's education.
