Sylvie Cécile's story

Sylvie Cécile is a 41 year old married woman who has two children in school. The two children are 17 years old and 6 years old. She has been specializing in the sale of pagnes (traditional cloths) for several years and gets her supplies from one of the markets outside Benin. Due to a lack of financial means, Sylvie Cécile has requested and obtained a loan from the microfinance insitution Finadev with a view to strengthening her revenues and meeting the needs of her customers. This loan will enable her to maximize additional income and contribute to the education of her children. She hopes to expand her business with a view to becoming a wholesaler.
