A loan of $1,000 helped to buy two bolts of fabric and twelve handbags of differing quality.

Roukiyatou's story

At forty years of age, Roukiyatou is married and the mother of three children, two of whom attend school. The oldest one is ten and the youngest is one month. She has been selling fabric and handbags for several years, and she gets her supplies at one of the markets in Bénin. In the hope of increasing her stocks in order to meet the demand of her customers, she has requested and gotten financial help from Finadev. This help will permit her to maximize her profits and to contribute to her children’s education.
