Florence's story

Florence is 33 years old, married, and the mother of three children, two of whom are in school. Her oldest and youngest children are respectively 12 years old and 1 year old.

She has been selling boxes of spaghetti, canned foods, soaps and other goods for one year, stocking up from a market located in Bénin.

In order to increase her purchasing power and to meet the demand from her customers, Florence has requested and obtained a micro-loan from Finadev. This loan will be used to increase her additional income and to contribute to her children's school fees.
