Choukouratou M.achakè's story

Thirty years old, Choukouratou is married and the mother of four children, two of whom attend school. The eldest and youngest are, respectively, nine years and five months old. She has a ready-to-wear clothing boutique where she has been selling clothing for several years. She buys her products in one of the outlying markets.
In order to increase her working capital, and to meet her customers needs, she has sought help from Finadev in the form of micro-finance, to generate a large profit and to help with the costs of the childrens schooling.
