Augustine's story

Augustine, who is 38 years old, is married and mother to six children, who are all at school. The eldest is 19 years old and the youngest four. Augustine has been selling kitchen utensils and various other products for several years and gets her supplies in one of Benin's markets. With a view to increasing her turnover and meeting her customers' expectations, she has requested and been granted a loan from Finadev so that she can maximise her interest and contribute to her children's education.
