Kpenangni Clémentine's story

At age 31, Kpenangni Clémentine lives with her husband and is the mother of three children, two of whom go to school. The oldest is nine years old and the youngest is two.
For years, she has owned a shop in which she sells cookies and candy. She gets her supplies from one of Benin’s markets. Desirous to increase her sales and to strengthen her business, she requested and obtained a micro-loan from finadev, with the objective to meet consumer demand and to increase her supplemental revenues.
The additional profit will allow her to participate to paying her children’s school expenses and to help her husband finish building their house, which is currently under construction.
