Gbossede Louise's story

Louise is 28 years old, married and mother to 2 children who go to school. The oldest is 5 years old and the youngest is 3 years old. She has been distributing soap and selling mobile phone recharge cards for years. She gets her supplies from the wholesalers in one of the markets of Bénin and from outside the country in order to resell them retail.

With the goal of strengthening her business and to satisfy the demand from her clients, she requested and obtained a loan from Finadev. This loan will allow her to maximize her supplemental income and to contribute to the schooling of her children.
