Sègbégnon's story

Sègbégnon, age 41, is a married mother of four children aged 7 to 15 who go to school. She has been selling sewing notions for a few years. Her customer base consists mainly of local tailors. She buys her merchandise at a market in Benin.

To bolster her sales and meet customer demand, she obtained a loan from Finadev. The additional income earned through this credit will help her to provide for her children and support their education.
