Flavienne Yélogninse's story

Flavienne Yélogninse is 28 years old. She is married and the mother of three children, two of whom are in school. Her eldest is 9 years old and her youngest is 1. Flavienne has been selling pagnes (colorful fabric wraps), hair extensions and other items for a number of years. She stocks up in one of the markets in Benin and also abroad. With the aim of strengthening her turnover and meeting the demands of her customers, Flavienne Yélogninse has requested and obtained a micro loan from Finadev which will enable her to maximize her profits and contribute towards her children's education.
