Solange is a professional seamstress and has a workshop in the centre of the town where she has been working for several years. She gets her supplies in one of the large shops in Benin. She has requested and obtained microloan from Finadev in order to be able to buy a sewing machine and an embroidery machine, so that she can better serve her customers. This loan will enable her to maximise her profits and contribute to her children's education.
