Rékiath's story

Rékiath is a 41-year old widow, who is mother to three children, two of whom are at school. The eldest and the youngest are 23 years of age and 16 respectively. She has been selling sacks of corn for several years and gets her supplies in a Benin market. With a view to increase her purchasing power and responding favorably to customer deand, Rékiath has requested and been granted financial support from Finadev. The profits she makes as a result of this financial support will enable her to contribute to her children's education costs and to boost her stock so that she can avoid ruptures of stock which lead to her losing potential income from her business.
