Post Copy files to a respective directory


Hi,
I am trying to read mulitple files and copy its contents (files) to a respective directory.
I have a folder "Oracle". Under this i have mulitple files as mentioned below.
Products bin admin misc etc
each of the above has a list of files in them.
Now i have created new directories with the same name as the above files in another location say
/apps/backup/Products
/apps/backup/bin
/apps/backup/admin
/apps/backup/misc
.
.
.
The script that i looking at has to read the files from Oracle,
backup its contents to its appropriate new directory.
Example:
read /Oracle/Products and backup the files mentioned in there to /apps/backup/products.
read /Oracle/bin and backup the files mentioned in there to /apps/backup/bin.
.
.
.

Can the pro's help me out with this.
Thanks in advance.

perhaps this
Code:
#!/bin/bash
for directory in {Products,bin,admin,misc}
do
cp -rv /Oracle/$directory/* /apps/backup/$directory
done
