Rachelle's story

42-year-old Rachelle is married and the mother of 2 children who both go to school. The eldest child is 17 years old and the youngest 13. She has specialised in selling fabric in a popular district of Benin for years, and she gets her supplies at one of the local markets. Her large and varied clientèle is essentially composed of men and women.

In order to increase her turnover and satisfy her customer demand, Rachelle has requested and received a microloan from Finadev. This loan will enable her to maximise her profits and contribute to her children's schooling expenses.
