Ramatou's story

59-year-old Ramatou is divorced and has two children who live independently. Her eldest is 32 years old and her youngest is 26. Ramatou has experience selling sugar, couscous, matches, shoes, mayonnaise and toothpaste. She has been in this business for a number of years and she stocks up in one of the markets in Benin.

In order to increase her turnover and satisfy her customers' needs, she has requested and obtained financial support from Finadev. This financial support will allow her to maximize her profits and eventually buy a plot of land.
