Mathurine's story

Mathurine is 43 years old, married, and mother of three children, all of whom have received schooling. Her eldest child is 19 years old, and her youngest child is 12 years old.

She has been selling beverages and various other items for a few years now, and she stocks up at one of the markets in Benin.

Striving to strengthen her business and satisfy the demand of her customers, she sought and obtained a micro-loan from Finadev with a view to maximizing her supplementary income and helping to pay for her children's education.
