A loan of $500 helped to buy fabrics.

Hubertine Espérencia's story

Hubertine Espérencia is 41 years of age and lives in Benin. She is marked to Jonas. She never attended school, but learned the dressmaking trade.

Together the couple has three children, all of whom are at school. In addition, they also have another child under their care. Together Hubertine Espérencia and her husband cover the various household expenses. To meet these expenses, Hubertine Espérencia has worked as a dressmaker for about 20 years. In addition, she also sells clothing in her workshop and at home. This business allows her to meet the needs of her children, and to help cover her own needs.

Hubertine Espérencia wants to better equip her dressmaking workshop by buying fabrics, which will allow her to efficiently meet her customers’ requirements. For this reason, she has requested a third loan from Alidé. Her first two loans were successfully repaid.
