A loan of $800 helped to purchase toothpaste, toothbrushes, and cosmetic products to sell.

Fatimatou's story

Fatimatou is 27 years old, married, and the mother of three children, of whom two are in school. The oldest is 8 years old, and the youngest is 3 months old. Specialized in selling toothpaste and cosmetic products for several years, she gets her supplies from one of the markets in Benin.

Concerned about bolstering her business capital and satisfying the needs of her customers, she requested and obtained a micro-loan from FINADEV. The profits earned will enable her to help cover her children's schooling costs and meet their needs.
