A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase fifty pigs.


F.mahoutin Gislène's story

Gislène is 31 years old, married and the mother of three children - all in school. The eldest and youngest are, respectively, 13 and 3 years old. She is a pig farmer in a region of Bénin and has been for two years - she buys her inputs from the local farms. With the intention of increasing her purchasing power, and to meet the never-ending growth in demand from her customers, she has sought financing from Finadev to help her maximise her profits and to help pay the childrens school fees.
