She is married to Bienvenu KIKI, an electrician, and has three children: Hans, Jeffry, and Claudette. When a teenager, she entered an apprenticeship and learned hairdressing. She has had her own hairdressing business for twelve years already. Meanwhile, she has included door-to-door sales of hair extensions to her business: she has two employees for this. This loan is for bolstering this business and diversifying it through the sale of yams and other goods.
