Agnes Abiola's story

Agnes Abiola is a widow with four children of which two are still dependent. For many years she has been specialised in the sale of groceries in a very working class area of Benin. She buys her stock at the markets in Benin and elsewhere. With a view to increasing her stocking up capacity to answer the demand, she requested and received a loan from Finadev to expand her business and maximise her additional income. The additional profit will enable her to help pay for her children's professional training and provide for her needs.
